Feed My Sheep

Posted 07-30-2023 at 05:53 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

"Simon Peter answered, 'You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.' And Jesus said to him, 'Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in Heaven. I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven; and whatever you bind on earth shall have been bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall have...

Understanding The Tree Of Life In Communion

Posted 07-30-2023 at 02:05 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

1 Corinthians 11:28-30, "But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep."

Communion is the "mystical form" of the Tree of Life, hidden from the spiritually blind. Jesus said that if we partake unworthily (without understanding that He Himself is the...

Understanding Your Right Standing With God

Posted 07-30-2023 at 02:04 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Genesis 39:20,21 - "Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined. But while Joseph was there in the prison, the LORD was with him;"

No twist or turn—not even abuse, slavery, slander or imprisonment—could hold back the fulfillment of God's destiny for Joseph's life. What people meant for evil, God used for good.

God has not forgotten you. Even when the opposite of your destiny seems to be happening,...

Self Imposed Limitations

Posted 07-30-2023 at 02:02 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Isaiah 54:2 - “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out; do not hold back; lengthen your ropes and strengthen your stakes."

When you don't think there is more to where you currently are in God's purpose for your life, you become limited. You think this right here -- all I see -- is it. This type of thinking keeps you from exploring and discovering. It keeps you from stretching yourself and dreaming about other possibilities....

Taking Chances

Posted 07-30-2023 at 02:00 PM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

Romans 8:31,32 - "If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?"

When walking in God's purpose for your life you've got to take a few chances. It is a temptation to wait and wait until you are absolutely sure of everything before you make a move.

If you've prayed and prayed and gathered the information needed, you're going to have to jump and...
