Message Monday 2/29/16 – FCC PHX Kingdom Ministry Partners – StreetLight USA

Chuck Foreman – Teaching Pastor

Streetlight is addressing a very broken area in our world, an area where creation is perhaps groaning the most–human trafficking, Streetlight rescues young girls from the clutches of harm and the bondage of hopelessness. This is why fcc has been a supporting partner with Streetlight from its beginning. Our partnership with organizations like Streetlight helps us be a church that is involved in resolving issues of injustice and oppression outside our four walls—grave issues close to God’s heart. We cannot be just a church going about religious activity which makes no impact for good in our world. Streetlight helps us understand the words of Isaiah the prophet:

“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?
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?
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.
Then you will call, and the Lord will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

(Isaiah 58:6-9)
