Humble Yourself Through Fasting

The primary purpose of fasting is self-humbling. It is a scriptural means ordained by God for us to humble ourselves before Him. Throughout the bible, God requires his people to humble themselves before Him. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. - Matthew 18:4 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those...

Fasting Reveals the State of Our Hearts

About six months ago my friend from college suggested we all begin fasting together on Thursdays. I had fasted with True Life on Thursdays in the past and, wanting to renew that commitment anyway, it felt like God's leading. Previously, when I had fasted I had abstained from radio shows and music in the car. I had a long commute at the time so it was a true sacrifice and...

Aching for the Kingdom Through Fasting

The idea of fasting stinks. I tend to get a little depressed when I know I'm going to be fasting. In fact, I am probably bothered more by the thought of fasting that I am by the bad news headlines I'm hearing everyday. Actually, can I be honest? It may even be true that I am more bummed by the prospect of being hungry than I am by the reports of people dying (unless I...

A Fasting Testimony

Looking back, I believe that God began preparing me for this fast about a year and a half ago. I think it was early 2019 while doing the study "4 Chair Discipling" that God revealed that I held a false belief concerning how Christ performed miracles during His life on Earth. I believed that He did them as God and not in His humanity, dependent upon the Holy Spirit. Realiz...

7 PRACTICAL WAYS TO SUPPORT JUSTICE FOR THE UNBORN

It is of foremost importance to state up front that the gospel we trust in is that "Christ Jesuscame into the world to save sinners,of whom I am the foremost." (1 Timothy 1:15). In other words, being "pro-life" or being against abortion is not what saves us or makes us righteous in God's sight. There are people who are pro-life, who stand against abortion, who fight for...

Advent Reflection: The Golden Calf of Christmas

If you've been attending our church for any length of time you have probably heard our pastor mention that he doesn't "do the Santa thing" with his family around Christmas. I know I've heard him speak about this on several occasions and in the past I had thought that he was probably making too big of a deal about it. While I recognized that the Santa myth had nothing to do...
