Mid-Cape Gathering preparation: Day 14
 

 *" I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of
knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I
consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not
having **a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which
is through faith in Christ-the righteousness that comes from God and is by
faith." *Philippians 3:8-9

During those years, in my zeal to please God, I had thought only of His
holiness and how out of reach it was. Like the apostle Paul, I had come
face-to-face with my sinfulness and weakness. Paul was filled with passion
for Jesus as a result of seeing the glory of His personality. For the
surpassing value of knowing a glorius *person, *Paul counted all things as
rubbish that he might gain a deeper relationship with Jesus.

PRAYER STARTER:

*Father, I don't like having to face my own human weakness, but unless I do,
and recognize Your glory, You cannot cause me to be more like You. Show me
the things that cause me to be so weak.*
**
WHEN I SAW MY SIN, I WAS CONFRONTED WITH MY INABILITY TO CHANGE MY OWN
HEART.
