The Glory of God on Cape Cod: January 14, 2009 update

 Today pastors and leaders from across the Cape and across denominational
lines, met again to pray for the vision that the Lord deposited in our
hearts, a vision of His Glory in our midst and the subsequent outbreak of
*"Therefore,since we have this ministry,as we have received mercy, we do not
lose heart........for we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord,
and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus' sake....for we have this treasure
in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power maybe of God and not
of us....for we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus'sake, that
the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh." *2 Cor 5,
selected verses

The above passage is relevant to all followers of Christ. We are all earthen
vessels, fragile, vulnerable to injury and breaking, to discouragment and to
temptation of giving up at times. Yet the Lord exhorts us not to lose heart,
for we carry within this earthen vulnerable vessel, is the greatest teasure
of all, Christ in us, the hope of glory.And even as we face challenges and
discouragments, if we are faithful, the life of Christ manifest through our
weak earthen vessels and made known to the world around us.

What strengthens us is to devote ourselves to prayer and to the Word of God
as the disciples did, and to the ministry that the Lord calls us to. We must
hear and differentiate between whatver service the Lord is calling us to,
and distractions that will take us that which the Lord is calling us to.

Please be praying for the Cape wide prayer gathering "Cape Cod Prays",
coming this Saturday. looking forward to seeing you there.
