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 – June 18, 2024

Posted 06-18-2024 at 11:36 PM by Albert Finch

John 11:44 - "And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus said unto them, 'Loose him, and let him go.'"

As you come to understand your Christ calling you start to develop vision. You start to see yourself bearing fruit that remains for God’s Kingdom. This becomes the most important thing in your life as it displaces other goals and agendas, you have developed for yourself in the past.

You begin to instinctively reject everything else for Christ and advance His Kingdom.

It is the responsibility of the people of God who witness spiritual resurrection to loose those who get saved by the power of God so that they can go. God wants us to fly like eagles as we endeavor to disciple new Believers out of the old grave clothes of their old life and lack of TEACHING into an understanding of their Christ identity.

Who will teach these new believers?

Isaiah 6:8 – “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
