- During the week
- About us
12th October 2011
About two weeks before this Season of Prayer, Fasting & Giving, I was asked to talk to our youth about fasting. Great, so I've got to talk to a bunch of teenagers about giving up food, and if that's not daunting enough, I've never fasted in my life… Gulp!
But that week I did a fast and the talk, and here's a summary:
Fasting is a way of declaring that your hunger for God is far greater than any other, and that when we are in His presence, we feed from Him. Once we have consumed all our appetites can manage, we digest it all: spiritual gifts are extracted and absorbed into our bodies and His love is pumped straight to our hearts.
And the best thing about this is that every time we encounter God in this way, our appetites increase, so let's be greedy for God! Let's live off His Word and, in doing so, gain clarity in his plans and promises.
Reading: Matthew 4:1-4
