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)

John 15:1,2,4 - "I am the Real Vine and my Father is the Farmer. He cuts off every branch of Me that doesn't bear grapes. And every branch that is grape- bearing he prunes back so it will bear even more....Make your home in Me just as I do in you.....When you're joined with Me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant." - (The Message Bible)

God must show us the great darkness we are in when our soul tries to find its ultimate happiness, consolation, and security in this world.
For He has revealed the endless crop of boredom you will harvest when you base life on pleasure-seeking -- instead of seeking His PURPOSE FOR OUR LIFE --- bearing fruit that remains as we advance His Kingdom in the earth.

Be the Joshua God has ordained you to be – cross over and possess your land of promise and fruition (your Christ calling).

Each time dryness comes -- and it will come back with greater ferocity, like a consuming hot wind -- stand your ground and retreat in quietness of soul.

Thankfulness takes the sting out of adversity. Thankfulness opens your heart to His presence and your mind to His thoughts. Let His love flow into your heart as you abide in Him.
