Mid-Cape Gathering preparation: Day 2
 

 *"He has sent Me ....to bestow on them a crown of beauty....They will be
called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His
splender." *Isaiah 61:1,3

Suppose there was a gardener who had planted and cared for a prize-winning
bed of flowers. Which would he hate more: a weed in the common field or a
weed in the bed of his prize-winning flowers? Obviously, he would hate the
weed in his flower bed more because it chokes the life out of his
prize-winning flowers and destroys the glory of his handiwork.
In the same way God hates sin infinitely more in the lives of Christians
because we are His vineyard, "the small plantings of the Lord." The most
wonderful thing of all is that He loves us with an everlasting love.

PRAYER STARTER:

*Father, I don't want the weeds of sin in my life to choke out Your glorious
Presence and Power. Show me those sins, and remove them from my life. I want
only what is pure and holy and righteous from You.*
**
NOTHING DESCRIBES GOD'S ABHORANCE FOR SIN IN THE WICKED BETTER THAN THE
DEGREE OF ETERNAL PUNISHMENT HE PRESCRIBES FOR IT.
