The Fast & The Forgiven
With the SP annual fast just around the corner, Pastor Sam shares insight on the Biblical practice of fasting. The Bible doesn’t present fasting in terms of “if” but “when”. In Scriptures, we see different types of fasting—absolute fasting, fasting from food, and fasting from certain types of food. The key is not so much what we fast, but that it is indeed a sacrifice (2 Samuel 24) and that it comes from our relationship with God, not the church or pastor forcing us. The fast should not be oriented at impressing others or simply a formality, but a chance for us to take our relationship with God to another level!
