It is great to be fasting as a community of believers. This is the first year that we, as a community, have fasted during the entire length of the Lent season. We have taken an approach that is a little unorthodox, but the point is the same – to grow closer to Jesus Christ!
This week, we are fasting from one meal per day. Let us be mindful to not just skip a meal each day. We must take that meal time and dedicate it to the Lord – reading, praying, singing, and/or praising God. The spiritual practice for this week is to refrain from buying anything that is not absolutely needed. And on Wednesday evening, we will have a time of testimony and giving God glory.
Scripture reading for the week: Leviticus 25:35-37; Proverbs 11:24-25; Matthew 6:19-21
