THIS WEEK'S TAKEAWAYS

Key Theme:
Jesus practiced fasting and assumed it would become normative to the life of every believer.

Key Application:
We should seek to pursue God, his heart, his will, and his leading through the means of fasting which he has wisely given.

Key Verses:
Isaiah 58:11 “And the LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”

Key Questions:
1. Fasting helps us to surrender and walk by the Spirit. Consider what or how you might step into fasting?

2. As you seek the Lord, which of the three outcomes listed in Isaiah 58:11 are most intriguing to you and why?

3. As you consider stepping into fasting as a normative part of your life, ask yourself the question “why not?” Does your answer reveal anything about your heart?

Church family, we praise God for how faithfully in so many respects you give. Our church family is undeniably generous, but we still have great needs for supplication. We ask that you give joyfully, faithfully and sacrificially in response to how our great God and Savior has given to us.
