"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".
I share that verse because we have chosen as a fellowship to proclaim a fast this week. I do not know if many here this morning have studied fasting or if many believe that fasting is to be a regular part of the Christian lifestyle.
