Many times in our lives God calls us to be obedient to Him and/or sacrifice things for Him. In our day to day walk with Christ we live this out by fasting. Fasting is the spiritual equivalent of putting our money where our mouth is. Am I really willing to suffer for the sake of the cross? If you fast the answer is yes. Jesus fasted so we as his followers must fast as well.
