Jan 12 – Options and Expectations
Fasting is a spiritual discipline that most assuredly will move us away from cultural behaviors that are cursed by self-indulgence and make it difficult to discern God’s best for us. If it is important, how come most Christians know nothing about it? Join us as we kick-off a 21-day spiritual breakthrough journey by looking at Matthew 6:16-18 and what Jesus said about fasting!
Jan 19 – Who Do You Trust
Abstaining from food for a period of time for spiritual purposes was a typical reaction in times of distress, uncertainty and preparation, and more than any other discipline, fasting reveals the things that can control us through those times. In Matthew 4:1–11 we find how Jesus overcomes various tempations exposed during His fast, providing valuable lessons for us today on how we can stand steadfast in trusting God!
Jan 26 – Repeatable patterns
The Church in the City of Antioch had an amazing experience of God’s favor and was one of the healthiest churches we see in the New Testament. Join us as we unpack Acts 13:1-4 together and find how our church today can find the same such blessing as the Antioch Church did then!
Feb 2 – Insights from the Past
After 20 years of a frustrating building project, Zechariah encourages God’s people in Zechariah 7:1-14 with prophet visions. The people would send a delegation to meet Zechariah with a question about fasting, a conversation which gives us insights on fasting for today.
