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)

We are continually reaping a harvest from what we have sown. Sow the goodness of God into the lives of others through your Christ calling and reap a harvest of God's favor.

Whatever your life looks like right now—wherever you are in your faith walk—you can begin anew. Recognize your current spiritual output, release it to the Lord (repenting as necessary and breaking any word curses you have spoken), and speak life into every famished place the Spirit of the Lord brings to your heart and mind.

Peter denied Christ three times, in John 21 we read about how Jesus showed Peter how to reverse the effect of that by asking him three times, "Do you love Me?" Peter responded, "Yes, three times -- then Jesus gave him what he is called to do in his ministry -- "Feed My sheep" (see verses 15-17).

We equip others with the word of God that has to do with their Christ identity -- the bread of life. God wants you to disciple others who have been bound by satan -- into a life where they are advancing in God's purpose for their life and bearing fruit that remains for God's Kingdom --- thereby, making them a world changer.
