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)

Posted 03-19-2024 at 11:54 PM by Albert Finch


You are part of a faithful remnant who will walk in boldness and power, carrying His presence wherever you go. Rise up and let the light of His truth shine into a world that longs for hope. Stay rooted in His Word, allowing His Spirit to lead you, and you will witness a large transformation in the thinking and perspective of the people you are discipling into their Christ identity.

Engage in passionate worship and adoration. Like David in Psalm 86, exalt Him with your whole heart. He is stirring within you a deep hunger for intimate worship, drawing you into the depths of His presence. Enter boldly into His sanctuary with thanksgiving and praise, for in His presence, you will find overflowing joy and abundant life as you equip others for Kingdom service and give them a passion to discover their Christ calling that has been dormant presently in their lives.

This is your appointed hour, and the gates of Hell will never prevail against you. Arise and shine, for the brilliance of His light has come upon you!
