Communion with God: Fasting (Part 1)

Luke 5:33-39
People fast for many different reasons, such as health, dieting, or religion. Why do Christians fast? That’s a question that was posed to Jesus when some people asked, “The disciples of John fast often and offer prayers, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink.” His answer gets to the biblical purpose for fasting. In this sermon, we try to understand what Jesus says about fasting and the role it serves in our communion with God.

God designed our souls to function in communion with himself. Just as a car needs gas, or the body needs food, so do our souls need God.

In this first sermon, we look at our soul’s great need for God’s word.
