About Fasting

What is Fasting?

What is Fasting?

Leviticus 16:29 “This shall be a statute forever for you: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls...”

This verse is God’s instruction regarding the Day of Atonement ritual in the OT... but the phrase “afflict your souls” is also translated as’s speaking of fasting as not just denying the body, but denying our desires, our appetites, and our wants.

So, fasting is an act of self-denial... but it’s not JUST an act of self-denial...

The purpose of fasting is to go without something temporal in order to hunger for the eternal. Fasting is a way of saying that food, drink, and physical sustenance are actually secondary to something else. We fast in order to develop greater levels of intimacy, dependence, communion, and communication with God.

Fasting is a physical abstinence for the purpose of spiritual investment
