No one ever talks about Fasting

12 August, 2009

Isaiah 58:6-9, 14

“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?

Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,

And 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?

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.

Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer;

You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’

Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD;

And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,

And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.

The mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

    I’m really glad you posted this. I heard this verse on the Brook Hills Podcast yesterday and was going to listen again to hear what the references were.

      Which sermon was it on? I’m glad David was talking about fasting 🙂 I listened to his Father’s Day message today. It was splendid.

        It was called “The Ministry of Mercy” as part of his Love Story Series on Ruth. It’s the only one I’ve listened to so far. The Podcast hasn’t had a new one posted since 7/12 so I don’t know whats going on with that.

    Do you have the podcast called “Brook Hills: audio” or something else. It seems like there is one that I had that stopped updating soon after I first got it.
