Matthew 4:1-4

Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to
be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days
and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.

Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the
Son of God, command that these stones become bread." But He
answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by
bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the
mouth of God.'"

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

When, how, and for how long should one fast? These things
are not specifically defined in the Bible but are themselves
a matter of prayer before God.

The classic example of fasting is when Jesus fasted for
forty days and forty nights shortly after He was baptized,
in preparation for His public ministry. Even in this case,
we do not know the details, only that it lasted forty days
and nights.

There are other example of fasting, which we will look at
Thursday.

God Bless You!

--FEATURED FUNNY:

A tenant complained to his landlord, "The people in the
apartment upstairs sure are annoying. Why, last night they
stomped and pounded on the floor until midnight."

"Did they wake you?" the landlord asked.

"No," the tenant explained, "Fortunately I was up playing
my tuba."

--ANSWER TO TRIVIA QUESTION:

Q. How did Jesus say we should conduct ourselves when
we fast?

A. act as if you were not fasting


"Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites,
with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces
that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say
to you, they have their reward.

But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,
so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your
Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees
in secret will reward you openly."

Matthew 6:16-18

The important thing here is the intent of the heart. If a
person fasts to appear holy or spiritual to other people
then they are doing it for the wrong reason. Our fasting
should be something of which God will take notice, not
other people.
