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)

"In those days I will pour out My Spirit even on My servants – men and women alike – and they will prophesy." (Acts 2:18 )

The Lord declares in Acts 2:18 that there is a very specific reason He pours out His Spirit on His people – so we will prophesy! God wants you speaking His truth in season and out of season like this, because the lost, hurting, broken, victimized, scared people of the world need to know there is an alternative to all that has failed and frustrated them.

In Genesis 1:1-25 God shows us how He brought forth creation and also a model of one of the main ways we operate in the authority that He called us to in verses 26-28. The words He spoke brought Kingdom order to chaos and confusion (Genesis 1:4-25). Now it is your turn to do the same.

In Him, with Him, and for Him, God has made you His dominion steward in the earth. Just as He spoke to creation to bring it forth, you can speak to creation to bring it into alignment with His truth. After all, you are made in His image and according to His likeness (see Genesis 1:26), called to do the works that the Word Himself did (see John 14:12), and we see evidence of all this throughout the Bible (e.g., Isaiah 55:5, Jeremiah 1:10, and Job 22:28).
