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)

Power Study A 46 - Notes

Posted 04-24-2024 at 08:48 PM by Albert Finch


1 Corinthians 2:12 - "Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God."

As we grow, through revelation, in our understanding of God’s purpose for our life, living in our Christ identity as God’s sons and daughters, and our true riches in His glory, we will live out of the ascended life.

When we don’t know what we already have, we are limited.

CURSE OF THE IDLE MIND

Many times we feel limited! Why?
Answer: Because satan targets our minds with lies.

The lies of the enemy sound like this:

1. You're not smart enough to teach God's Word.

2. What makes you think that God would use someone with a past like yours?

3. You are a complete failure in life. How can God use you?

4. If you pray for the sick they might not get healed. Just think of what people might say about you.

5. You are not qualified to demonstrate God's power.

6. You are flawed -- God cannot use someone like you!

As we come to understand our Christ identity, we become aware of the boldness in Christ that we already possess which will be manifested in the lives that we will be changing.
