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)

Daily Meditations And Affirmations - MAY 6, 2024

Posted 05-06-2024 at 09:08 PM by Albert Finch


"I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision" - Acts 26:19.
"God was pleased to reveal His Son IN ME so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles." - Galatians 1:15,16


Paul was devoted to a Person, not to a cause,He was absolutely Jesus Christ and the advancing of His Kingdom over the entire earth.
When we are born again we become one with Christ and come to understand our Christ identity so that, through our Christ calling, we might preach Him among the nations -- evangelizing -- DISCIPLING and equipping others for Christian service. Once we meet Christ, then others can see Christ IN US. The life we live, we live by Christ IN US.


"For I am determined to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified." - 1 Corinthians 2:2




Go to your meditations of Heaven, and keep there a while. The children of that Kingdom above, have no taste for trifles, and especially when they are employed in the affairs of the Kingdom. No more will a soul that is taking a survey of Heaven and heavenly things, fix his eyes on such poor things below. (Philippians 3:8)



PRAYER:
Lord, make me a tabernacle for Your Spirit like the tabernacle of old. Fill me with Your Shekinah glory so that I can be effective in bearing fruit that remains for Your Kingdom through my Christ calling.


AFFIRMATIONS:

I imbibe deeply - I'm drinking and soaking in His presence - I'm drinking from the river of His pleasures.

I practice receiving God consciousness to the point that now I can close my eyes and in seconds feel the glory of God.

I can drink the same way that I was saved. I am invited to come to the waters and I can drink as much as I want to, just like when I believe from my heart and receive anything else from God.

Thank you Father for setting such a magnificent banqueting table before me in the presence of my enemies. Yes Lord, let the vats overflow with the new wine and new oil.
