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 - March 17, 2024

Posted 03-17-2024 at 01:58 AM by Albert Finch


2 Corinthians 5:19 - "...God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them..."

No judgment will fall on you today because it fell on Jesus 2000 years ago at Calvary. And if God was gracious enough to remove Lot and his family before the judgment fell (Genesis 19:12-22), how much more will He do for you who are no longer under judgment?

Don't be judgment-focused and look back at the sins you have committed. He remembers that He has already judged and punished your sins in the body of His Son. And because He is faithful to His Son and to what His Son has done, He will never judge or punish you. All your sins are forgiven so you are always in right standing with God. There is now nothing stopping you from bearing fruit that remains for His advancing Kingdom through your Christ calling.

Any trouble that might have today is not from Him. He is out to bless you. And He wants you blessed more than you can ever ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20).
