electronic fast

In an effort to give precedence to proper priorities this month, many of my friends have gone on an e-fast (or maybe that’s i-fast)!

Why is that?

In this 24/7, instant society where a majority of our communities cannot be “disconnected” for even a moment, their senses are over-stimulated. They cannot

Be still,

and know that I am God.” Ps 46:10 (WEB)

It is considered a badge of honor to be

busy

buried

booked

scattered

committed

over-active

over-booked

over-scheduled

not have enough time

have too much on your plate

have too many irons in the fire

run around like a chicken with its head cut off

Have you been there? Do you know what I mean?

But how does God really see it? 

Ge 2:2 On the seventh day God finished his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. (WEB)

It is time for a time out: to quiet your mind to hear from God, to rest your body so that it can restore itself, to take a day off from work (ministry). Not just purge once a year, but discipline yourself not to abuse such a great tool as technology.

1Co 9:25-27

25) Every man who strives in the games exercises self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.

26) I therefore run like that, as not uncertainly. I fight like that, as not beating the air

27) but I beat my body and bring it into submission, lest by any means, after I have preached to others, I myself should be rejected. (WEB)

Modern conveniences make our lives easier. State-of-the-art electronics are to be enjoyed. Foremost, let these advances be instruments for God’s glory.

1Co 6:20 for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. (WEB)
