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)

Scripture Of The Day - September 14, 2021

Posted 09-14-2021 at 12:06 PM by Albert Finch

Galatians 6:7 - "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap."

It is a mockery to question that I can obey God and not have a reward. It is a mockery to think that I could do something that God would not take notice of.

Your inheritance in Christ is a lifestyle -- it is a place to live from. it seems so abstract because it is so different from ordinary daily living and mindsets. We live from the abiding presence of the resurrected Christ -- it changes how we live and what we expect. The throne life -- the ascended life is the reality for every believer who acknowledges it and pursues it.

When you have tasted supernatural supply you have lost the right to begin any thought pattern of what you do not have. We live under the kingdom we think most about -- what our heart and mind are anchored in.
