More religion?Sometimes we don't need another sermon, sometimes we just have to act! We have to hear the heart cry of those exploited across the world, and make a way to assist those in need! We can no longer be content to pursue our own goals and interests, let's truly expend ourselves for others. This is pure religion before God!! To look out for the distressed widows and orphans, and remain undefiled by the world. James 1:27. We must be careful not to seek more to make ourselves excessively more comfortable or notable in this world...and we mustn't use religion as a tool for personal advancement in this world...but pure religion, seeks to pour out for others. Let's defy the culture, let's do it the Micah 6:8 way!

Isaiah58:1-31“Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins. 2 For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. 3 ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?’ “Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and exploit all your workers.
Isaiah58:4-64 Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists. You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high. 5 Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves? Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed and for lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the Lord? 6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?
Isaiah 58:7-107 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 them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? 8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness[a] will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. 9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, 10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday.
Isaiah58:11-1411 The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. 12 Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. 13 “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the Lord’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, 14 then you will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
Isaiah 1:17Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless…
James 2:14-1714 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds.
Proverbs 11:1The LORD abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight.

A LIFE ON THE LINE – Edgar Gustavo Raxon weighed only six pounds at 3 months old.
Even before his birth, Edgar’s future was bleak. After Edgar’s birth, his mother desperately tried to nurse him, but being so malnourished herself, she had no milk. Desperate, she brought him to a Food For The Poor supported nutritional center in Guatemala, pleading for formula to save her baby.
When our staff met Edgar, he was the size of a child’s doll. Holding him was like cradling a bag of bones tracing his brittle shoulders, the jutting arch of his ribs. Edgar was a precious life God created.
Because of his condition when he came to the clinic, Edgar never had a chance. But there are hundreds of other starving babies that can be saved, through your gifts for food.
Please help today, feed a starving child, “Tomorrow may be too late!”
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly[a] with your God
This the type of ministry acceptable to Him. To act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with him.
