There is a verse in the book of Isaiah that well describes this generation. “…this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men” (Is. 29:13). Well describes this verse, the sentiments and thoughts of many who even sadly wear the badge labelled “Christian”, whose religion consists of merely outward show and external piety. There is a fast that God is seeking for in these last days…not one of outward affliction but one of inward affliction, a breaking and humbling of the heart to DO the will of God!!
This sermon is a call to put away the hypocrisy of religion and to perform that which is right toward our neighbour out of heart that is rightly related to God!
