Why Fast?

fastFasting today is used for purposes beyond that of spiritual growth.  Some fast to lose weight while others fast because the Shepherd of their church initiates it, but why do we really need to fast?

Fasting is an individual quest.  It is not demanded and it will not hinder you from inheriting eternal life with Christ….but, it is a means of crucifying the carnal being and strengthening the spiritual being within us

Many circumstances prompt us to fast such as overcoming an addiction in our life

Fasting is not only about denying ourselves food or drink, but also denying ourselves from worldly pleasures that interfere with our walk with the Lord

Fasting should not be a duty or done grudgingly, but it should be done with thanksgiving and with purpose

Why fast? This is a question that only we as individuals must ask ourselves and in coming to our own conclusion as to whether we fast or not….
