Fasting - August 1-21
Jesus, the sweetest name I know!
One of the natural struggles of the flesh is sweets. We like them in many forms. Over the next 21 days, I am asking the church to turn the appetite for sweets to the Lord. I am asking you to give up all sweets, pleasant bread (cakes and cookies), sugars etc. to become more aware of the sweetness of God.
The purpose of this fast is to understand the pleasures we crave and denying ourselves. To learn to say no for the sake of Christ. To Crown Christ as the sweetest thing in our life. Will you join me?
Psalm 119:103 - How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
