Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Scripture Of The Day - March 18, 2024

Posted 03-18-2024 at 08:35 AM by Albert Finch


1 Corinthians 2:9 - "That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, 'No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.'"

He is lifting you up higher to see the new things that He has prepared and planned that are coming through for you and are now just ahead. The things you did not expect, the things you didn't see coming and the things you didn't know He could do, He is going to do.

It is time to step further into your Christ calling. The places and people that the Lord has prepared for you to align and connect with will be so unexpected and out of left field. Many will be left wondering how you got there and how this happened.

There will be nothing that you can do in your own strength or ability, but it will be in His, because of what He can do for you and through you!
