#Day8 John the Baptist Fast: Fasting for a Life of Influence
God wants us here on earth for some higher purpose than mere existence. That purpose is to represent Him to the world, to be the messengers of His gospel and His will to men and women, and by our lives to exhibit to them the true life and teach them how to live it.
He is representing us in heaven, and our one business is to represent Him on earth.
Although we may be engaged in the secular affairs of life, it is simply that we may represent Christ here, carry on His business and use our influence and means to further His cause. He came here from another realm with a special message, and when His work was done He was called to go home to His Father.
