Not Quickly Broken: Fasting – A Key To Spiritual Quickness

January 10, 2021   /   The Bridge Community Church North




“as for us, we have all these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has already been marked out before us. We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus, who birthed faith within us, and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection.”   Hebrews 12:1-2


“When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.”   Matthew 6:16
