Sermon Notes
Learning to Fast ~ Various Scriptures

The sermon in one sentence: Fasting helps to deepen our dependence on God and opens opportunity for extended time in prayer, scripture, and helping others in their time of need.

  • We fast because we have been made righteous by God, not to be made righteous by God (Isaiah 58:1-5)
  • We fast to remind us that we are not yet physically present with Jesus (Mark 2:18-22)
  • We fast in order to spend extended time in prayer (Acts 13:1-3)
  • We fast in order to spend extended time in God’s word (Luke 4:4)
  • We fast in order to help care for the disadvantaged (Isaiah 58:6-10)
