True Fasting

"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice and untie the
the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-
when you see the naked, to clothe him,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.

Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help and He will say: Here am I."

Isaiah 58: 6-9

This is the essence of true fasting. After we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal savior, we must perform our acts of kindness and love so that people will see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.

We Are A New Creation

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ
he is a new creation; the old has
gone, the new has come!

All this is from God, who reconciled
us to Himself through Christ and
gave us the ministry of reconciliation;

That God was reconciling the world to
Himself in Christ, not counting men's
sins against them. And He has
committed to us the message of reconciliation.

We are therefore Christ's ambassadors,
as though God were making His appeal
through us.
We implore you on Christ's behalf:
Be reconciled to God.

God made Him who had no sin to be sin
for us, so that in Him we might become
the righteousness of God."
2 Corinthians 5: 17-21

We are a new creation. There is now no condemnation for those who are in Jesus Christ. So let us throw away our old sinful self. It is already dead in sins. We are now gloriously alive in Christ's righteousness, love and joy.

Praise God For A Living Hope

"Praise be to the God and father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living
hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade-
kept in heaven for you who through faith are shielded by God's
power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed
in the last time.

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may
have to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.

These have come so that your faith- of greater worth than gold,
which perishes even though refined by fire- may be proved to be
genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus
Christ is revealed."

1Peter 1: 3-7

We maybe carrying such heavy budens right now but they will last only for a little while. We are just being tested by God so we will be worthy of the great glory that He will reveal to us when He returns to this world.
