6 Is this not the fast that I have chosen:
To loose the bonds of wickedness,
To undo the heavy burdens,
To let the oppressed go free,
And that you break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
And that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out;
When you see the naked, that you cover him,
And not hide yourself from your own flesh?
8 Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
9 Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.
Isaiah 58:6-9a

This morning Pastor Michael's sermon was on how we are to "Fast for the harvest, not just fast from something."  Verse 6 tells us that God will deliver us.  Verse 7 tells us to share what we have.  Verse 8 tells us to let God's radiance shine through us.  Give up something that is taking you away from God!  We are to fast for God's glory not mans!

God, with all His giving heart, can only give us himself as we recognize the depth of the need in our own lives.  Eugenia Price
