Seeking The Kingdom
17th Broadcast Fasting
Should I fast?
The simple answer is yes, Matthew 6:16
However, it must a spiritual reason and not a personal challenge for your pride.
It must be a private affair. Matthew 6:16-18, Luke 18:9-14
One of the best benefits of fasting is gaining the ability to tell your body no. Self-control is vital for a faithful life for God (1 Corinthians 9:24-27). If we allow our desires to rule us then sin will be our master (Genesis 4:6, 7). We are to rule our bodies not the other way around. Jesus demonstrates that control over His body in the wilderness (Matt. 4:1-4).
