February 21, 2021 – Fasting
Matthew 6:16-18, Joel 2:12-14
On Wednesday, we talked about how following Jesus can cost you security. It can cost you the safety net that so many look for. God helps us cope with this by giving us fasting, where we deny some sort of earthly desire, food or otherwise, and point us to the only security that we really have, our relationship with Jesus. God invites us to experience firsthand that we don’t need the securities that we crave.
