The Path to His Glory: September 16, 2009 update
 

 *"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who being in the
form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be grasped,
but made Himself of no reputation,taking the form of a bondservant,and
coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He
humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death,even the death of
the cross. Therefore God has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which
is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow..." *Phil
2:5-10

*"God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble" *James 4:6

Dear friends,

Today we discussed the above passage from Phil 2. *Christ models for us the
path to His glory*.The first Adam, even though he was a mere created
man, *wanted
to be something he was not supposed to be*; he wanted to be like
God. The end result is that he was humbled, and sin entered the world. In
contrast, Christ, the second Adam, even though He was God incarnate, He did
not consider equalilty with God as something to be grasped, He humbled
himself, taking the form of a bondservant and obeying the Father unto
death.

In our quest for the glory of God in our midst and the subsequent outbreak
of revival, *we must follow Christ's model of humility*. We must not follow
the worldly ways of self-promotion, self-exaltation, and presumption, all of
which grieves the Holy Spirit and lifts the favor off God of us.

Our next all Cape prayer meeting is on *Wednesday September 30th from
7pm-8pm, at Faith Assemblies of God, 154 Bearses way in Hyannis*. Please
arrive at 6:30 pm for parking, seating and fellowship time so we can start
the meeting promptly at 7 pm. We encourage you to come and stand with us in
one accord in prayer for the Cape. This is pleasing to the Lord.

The premise of these meetings in that *prayers give birth to the purposes of
God*. The above scriptures gives us a behind the scenes look at what happens
in the spirit realm when we pray. Our prayers are heard by God, they move
Him to act and answer our cry.

*If your church would like to host one of these meetings, please e-mail us.*

Please spread the word about these meetings in your own circle to those who
don't know about them, so we can all come together in prayer as one.

We look forward to seeing you in 2 weeks.

Blessings,

The Glory of God on Cape Cod team
