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)

See the future and live like you are there, not like you are still bound by your circumstances. All of the fathers of the faith in Hebrews 11 lived their lives by the future that they saw in the now.

Hebrews 11:1 - "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Notice it says "Now faith is."

When you live in the now like you are in the future, it becomes the "substance" of what you are seeing. Your faith doesn't become tangible until you act like it is the truth in the here and now! In other words, THERE IS NO "EVIDENCE" UNTIL YOU LIVE LIKE IT.
