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)

"Arise from the dead..." - Ephesians 5:14

The life and power comes after we "get up and get going," God does not give us overcoming life -- He gives us life as we overcome. When the inspiration of God comes and He says, "Arise from the dead," we have to get ourselves up; God will not lift us up. Our Lord said to the man with the withered hand "Stretch out your hand" (Matthew 12:13).

Luke 17:21 - "...for indeed, the Kingdom of God is within you."

God wants you to be conscious of the abundance of resources in His Kingdom. Jesus said "The Kingdom of God is within you." this means that the Kingdom of God is not some physical place. It is within you and it is where the abundance of resources is.

So if you want to experience abundance in your life, come to understand, and be conscious of your Christ identity, then what is inside you will become a reality on the outside because His Kingdom is within you!


My love is set on God and I know His name - so He delivers me and sets me on high! He answers me when I call and is with me in bad times. He delivers me, honors me, satisfies me with long life, and continues showing me salvation. (Psalm 91:14-16)

The Lord is my rock. He is solid and does not change. He is my Fortress, surrounding me with protection. He is my Deliverer, always making a way for me. My God, my refuge! (Psalm 18:2)

I will not be like those who are delivered over and over again - those who are bent on rebellion and choose to continue to go back and waste away in their own sin. I will not abuse the goodness of God! I will not go back to the very thing I was delivered from! (Psalm 106:43)
