The Role of Fasting in a Spirit-Filled Life
Wes McAdams   -  

Jesus assumed that after his ascension to the throne, his followers would fast. He even gave them specific instructions about how to fast. Fasting is one way that Christians have—for the last 2,000 years—disciplined their bodies in order to be more aware of the Spirit. The desires of our flesh, even the most natural desire of hunger, will control us if we are not intentional about disciplining ourselves and surrendering our lives to the control of the Spirit. (Scripture: Matthew 6:16-18)
