Day 28 | Introduction to Fasting
Welcome to week 5 on our 40 days journey! This week we will tackle the discipline of fasting. Today we want you to ask the Spirit how he is leading you to engage in this discipline, so that you can go into the week with a Spirit-led game plan. Take a look at this video as Jeff gives an introduction and some practical vision to help us fast as a community this week.
We also hope that you will join us for our worship gathering at 10am today. As you prepare your heart, take some time to read and meditate on the transformational truths in this text we will look at together.
Matthew 23:25–28 (ESV)
25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26 You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean. 27 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 So you also outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
