Jesus & Fasting
Read Matthew 6:16-18
“When we give up something for God we shouldn’t expect to get something in return…but we always do!” ~ Asil Treblig
1. Jesus ______ we will be fasting.
· To seek God’s guidance or comfort
· To worship and glorify God and hunger for Christs coming.
2. Jesus _____ against hypocritical fasting.
· Hypocrites look for attention.
· Hypocrites fast for man not God
3. Jesus __________ us to heartfelt fasting.
· Fast incognito.
· Fast heartfelt for God not man.
· Jesus modeled fasting for us.
· Christ suffered and sacrificed for us.
· What do you value the most?
· What are you willing to give up for Him?
