- RELIGION - Christian General
Jesus had a lot to say about fasting. He taught on fasting in Matthew chapters 6, 9, and 17; Mark chapter 9; and Luke chapters 5 and 8. After receiving John's baptism in water, Jesus fasted forty days in the wilderness. He taught that fasting was one of the three foundations of the faith in His Sermon on the Mount. Yet, in light of everything that Jesus taught on this topic, many Christians fail to develop a lifestyle that includes fasting. Fasting is a powerful force. It's a weapon against demonic forces. It's a method to restore and maintain health. It's one of the most overlooked and under-utilized tools available to every believer! Lori Greenwood looks at fasting three dimensionallyâ"body, soul, and spirit. A Walk in the Wilderness covers keys to health and wellness, scriptural insight, and personal testimonies, unlocking the door to a new level of intimacy with God and a new level of victorious Christian living.
