So how do I participate?
Well, quite simply, pray about what God would have you fast & simply join in, January 9th through the 29th! Spiritual disciplines like this can actually be quite fun when you’re doing it alongside a big group of people.
And keep in mind: Fasting doesn’t merely mean: abstaining from food. You can fast almost anything. In the truest sense, fasting is a process of abstaining from something for the purpose of worship, prayer, and self-discipline. You can fast sugars, candy, social media or Coffee and be completely in tune with the purpose of fasting.
And it’s worth it. And here’s why: Its one of the few spiritual disciplines that reveals the truest state of our self-denial muscles. And if that sounds scary, consider your alternatives: Crisis and moral failure also reveal this. So, we have a choice: Preventative Humility vs. Humiliation.
Pastor Peter often says, “one thing is for sure: This can be your best year yet, if it’s your best year spiritually.” So don’t miss out. Let’s do this together!
