THRIVE – The Discipline of Fasting
THRIVE part 1 – The Discipline of Fasting
On Sunday January 13th, Pastor Eric launched a series called THRIVE. Over the next few weeks he will continue to teach in this series focusing on the Spiritual Disciplines that will help us THRIVE with our Faith.
The first spiritual discipline we looked at was Fasting. Jesus taught that fasting, praying and giving were expected of His followers.
Matthew 6:2 “When you give…”
Matthew 6:5 “When you pray…”
Matthew 6:16 “When you fast…”
It moves the Heart of God when we intentionally seek Him by purposely abstaining from desirable foods for a set time in pursuit of knowing Him more fully. (Daniel 10:3 NIV)
