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)

Living In The Fullness Of Our Redemption

Posted 05-16-2024 at 09:56 AM by Albert Finch

Grab hold of the strength of the Word of victory that is power to us. Anchor it in your mind, in your heart, and in your thoughts!

“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord!” - 1 Corinthians 15:57, 58


We can abound in the work of the Lord (God's PURPOSE for our life) knowing that our labor is not in vain in the Lord. Thanks be to God, because He gives us the victory through Jesus! You know that whatever you do for the Lord, all that you do, all that you will do, for Him, is not in vain! Never in vain!

This season will be a great time of -- you will stand steadfast, stand firm! The Greek translation for the word “steadfast” is in the context of 1 Corinthians 15: 58 -- one would think it means to keep our feet firmly planted, staying in position -- but it means, being fixed in PURPOSE.


After you receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior the most important thing you need to do is to understand your Christ identity – this can be found in the epistles of Paul to the first century churches. Without this you will be unable to effectively battle the powers of darkness. You cannot be successful in advancing God’s Kingdom without apprehending and possessing the finished work of the cross.

Ask, knock, and seek until you come to comprehend and begin implementing Gods purpose for your life (your Christ calling.)


If in due time we are steadfast in embracing the ascended life in Christ, the unseen will become seen and the impossible will become possible.

We believe Jesus right now to release a fresh anointing on our personal ministry to others. May we preoccupy ourselves with equipping and sending out those who would be our harvest in advancing God’s Kingdom.

May our strength come from Him and may we move from glory to glory in our Christ calling as we bear fruit that remains for His Kingdom.
