FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS FASTING?
Fasting is an ancient spiritual discipline that’s vital to a healthy, vibrant faith in Jesus Christ. It is the abstinence of food or anything that has an undue grip on our life – coffee, social media, tv, video games, alcohol, etc. It is giving up what you desire most to train your spirit to desire God the most.
WHY DO WE FAST?
Our desires need to be disciplined or our appetites will become our Gods. We should incorporate fasting into our faith walk and relationship with Jesus Christ. God speaks through His Word and we are often softened to receiving and responding to His Word when we fast.
HOW DO YOU FAST?
To fast without praying is simply to diet. Replacing the time you would normally be eating, read God’s word and let it marinate in your heart, mind, and soul; confess your sin; humble yourself before God; and worship God and proclaim His goodness.
