Mid-Cape Gathering preparation: Day 10
 

*" You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have
eternal life; and it is these that bears witness of Me;*
* and you are unwilling to come to Me, that you may have life." *John
5:39-40

For the first time in my life, zeal was not enough. If anything, it had
turned on me and become my enemy-condemning me for my spiritual failures. My
human zeal was not able to deliver my heart. My increasing anger toward God
and people added to my burden of guilt feelings. I was almost twenty years
old by this time-and was a ball of frustration on the inside because I
viewed myself as a spiritual failure.

PRAYER STARTER:

*Father, I too, like Mike Bickle, have felt like a spiritual failure at
times.Hep me to blaze with passion for You. *
**

I SUDDENLY REALIZED I WAS LIKE THE PIOUS PHARISEES WHO STUDIED THE
SCRIPTURES YET DID NOT ENJOY A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PERSON THOSE VERY
SCRIPTURES WERE ABOUT.
