Day 6 - February 23 - Lent - Revive Today

Isaiah 58:6-10Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Isn't the fast I choose:
To break the chains of wickedness,
to untie the ropes of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free,
and to tear off every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
to bring the poor and homeless into your house,
to clothe the naked when you see him,
and not to ignore your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will appear like the dawn,
and your recovery will come quickly.
Your righteousness will go before you,
and the Lord’s glory will be your rear guard.
9 At that time, when you call, the Lord will answer;
when you cry out, He will say, ‘Here I am.’
If you get rid of the yoke among you,
the finger-pointing and malicious speaking,
10 10 and if you offer yourself to the hungry,
and satisfy the afflicted one,
then your light will shine in the darkness,
and your night will be like noonday.

By Grace, today I will fast from apathy and indifference because we are not here to make an impression but to make a difference. Today I will be the hands and feet of Christ everywhere I can because He’s given me His heart so I can. We repent for not caring for the widow and the orphan, but caring more about looking like we’re keeping up with Jones’s, because You say faith like this is a sham, a fake, a fraud.

We are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:20-21).
