Being practical is what the kingdom of God is about, it is to establish God’s kingdom through work and faith as we look toward the final days ahead when our King shall reign on the earth.
However, as we serve, we must remember, we are building and preparing a nation of people out of all the nations on earth for our king, so that upon his return he will find faith in the earth, and a people expecting and awaiting his appearance.
Therefore, we will seek to fulfil the fast God calls on all his people to do that we might have the reward in store for his faithful citizens.
Isaiah 58:6-10 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loosen the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou sees the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
