WHAT IS FASTING?
Unger's Bible Dictionary explains that the word fast in the Bible is from the Hebrew word sum, meaning "to cover" the mouth, or from the Greek word nesteuo, meaning "to abstain." Fasting is "a Christian's voluntary abstinence from food for spiritual purposes." Though The Day of Atonement--also called "the Fast" (Acts 27:9)-is the only fast day commanded by God (Leviticus 23:27), other national fast days are mentioned in the Bible. *We encourage those with health problems to consult a qualified medical practitioner before fasting.

DOES JESUS EXPECT ME TO FAST?
Jesus expected that His followers would fast. (Matthew 6:16-17, "And when you fast...But when you fast..."). The Acts church fasted: (Acts 9:9, 13:2, 14:23; Matthew 9:14-15). Until Jesus returns, He expects us to fast.
