"Fasting - I could never do that. It's only for very special followers of Jesus, isn't it?" Did you realise that every single one of us fasts every single day? Yes, and in the morning before we leave for work we "break-fast".
It's part of life and in the Sermon on the Mount as Jesus teaches us how we can and should live in his Kingdom he says "when you fast". However, he's not just thinking about the hours overnight but as part of the rhythm of our walk with him. But why do we fast? What difference does fasting make?"
