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)

Hebrews 4:9-11 LB - "So there is a full complete rest still waiting for the people of God. Christ has already entered there......let us do our best to go into that place of rest, too..."

In the life of faith, when you learn that you are living FROM victory and not FOR victory and yield yourself entirely, to your CALLING in Christ, living a life of walking in the Spirit -- that is when you enter the rest of God. You live in your Christ identity, from heaven -- in your God-given authority to advance and bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom in the earth,

It is the soul that thirsts for God, for the living God, that will have the spiritual understanding of how Jesus, the High Priest, brings us into God's presence so we can receive revelation for our next assignment in our God-given calling.

Psalm 63:1 - "O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water."
