This Sunday, in our series “Second Nature: Developing Spiritual Habits,” Shannon will be speaking about the importance of fasting and sharing how this habit has impacted his life and spiritual growth.
To be honest, fasting is a discipline I have avoided. I’ve convinced myself that it’s not really necessary in my relationship with God. I imagine that there are many of you who feel the same as I do.
That’s a lie we tell ourselves, because we want to be comfortable. We justify so we can take the easy road guilt free.
We have to pray for a change of heart. Discipline isn’t discipline if it begins and ends with comfort. Let’s prepare ourselves and hearts to hear God’s word regarding fasting.
