What comes to mind when you think of fasting? Extreme radical Christianity? Emaciated bodies? Unnecessary hardship irrelevant for today’s church? Hunger pains? Fasting doesn’t get a lot of press these days, and when it does it can come across as extreme and legalistic. There is a ditch on each side of this road we want to stay out of. One extreme says fasting is irrelevant and unnecessary for the Christian in today’s world. Because Jesus didn’t say much about fasting, it need not be a concern for us today. On the other side of the road is a ditch that says fasting is the only way a person can experience the fullness of God’s power. This attitude boast that Jesus plus fasting equals the abundant Christian life. What is needed is a balanced Biblical approach. Fasting doesn’t make us righteous in the eyes of God but neither is it irrelevant in the Christian life. Like the other disciplines of the soul, it has its appointed place. In today's message we look at what the Bible has to say about fasting and it's implications for our lives.
