Fasting, Mortality and Repentance
By Dustin+ Messer | | Celebrate | Ezek 3:3, fasting, Gen. 2:17, Gen. 3:14, James 4:7, Lent
Why do we fast? Christians fast for two primary reasons: to recall our mortality and to flee from sin and repent. While these two reasons can be distinguished, they can’t be separated. Sin and death are joined at the hip, as are repentance and dependence on God.
