Fasting By the Groom and the Bride

Watch the full teaching here

March 1, 2020 // We are all called to love like God loves us. Jesus, our Groom, fasts for His Bride today. We the Bride must also lead a “fasting lifestyle" which the Western Church has ceased to do. Fasting was an important part of our theological heritage from John Wesley. Like all acts of piety, fasting needs to be done in a physically, mentally, and spiritually healthy way. In addition to regular fasting such as breakfast and lunch one day a week, other ways of fasting can draw one closer to Christ, such as fasting in times of crisis, fasting in protest, and fasting for direction. Mark 4:24-25; Matthew 9:14-15; Matthew 6:16; Luke 2:37; Revelation 7:16-17; Revelation 3:20
