I am now in a class called Spiritual Formations. This class helps us practice and master many different spiritual disciplines. Just recently we learned alot about fasting for the Lord. Now this concept is often not mentioned or talked about much in churches. In Matthew 6:16, Jesus states:
“And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward.”
Now this verse suggests that should not tell people when we are fasting. However, it would be nice for people to give directions on how to fast.
