When You Fast
“Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly." Matthew 6:16-18 Throughout scripture we hear of great men of faith taking time to fast. But why? What is the purpose of fasting and should we as Christians fast today? Tune in as we discuss what scripture says about this vital topic.
