Fasting is Feasting

  • by

This week, Pastor Dennis continues our study of the Book of Acts by focusing the conversation on Acts 13:1-3. The leaders of the church in Antioch were gathered together worshiping, fasting, and praying when the Spirit spoke to them and instructed them to send Saul and Barnabas on what would become their first missionary journey. So many of us want to hear God speak. We want to walk in step with and be led by the Spirit. And yet, we’re choosing to gratify our flesh instead of crucifying it. Fasting is a spiritual practice we can engage that will shape us into the image of Jesus. What if fasting leads to hearing, knowing, and experiencing more of Jesus?
