Is It Necessary For Others To Know We Are Fasting?
Reader, is it necessary for others to know we are fasting? It is directed towards God. A true fast is fasting unto God and not unto man. When we fast, we deny ourselves things we love for something we love even more. There are many ways to fast – all foods, partial fasts, and media fasts. With that being said, on Wednesday, June 1st, "The dReam Center Church" of Atlanta, GA, under the leadership of Bishop William Murphy lead pastor, has taken his church on 21 days of fasting and praying. The above flyer was posted for discussion in one of my Facebook groups. The idea of 21 days of fasting and praying is a time where the pew sitters move away from what is pleasurable to them into what brings God pleasure. Someone in the group suggested that maybe the church should have kept this private with more focus on getting folks delivered.
