A biblical practice I don't practice much

 Today is day one of our seven day church wide fast. I know what many of you are thinking you big unspiritual baby its only seven days stop crying. By first glance you can tell that this biblical practice of fasting I don't practice much. I was thinking what is fasting and is really that necessary. I see that there was only one day God commanded the people to fast yet this practice was done by many great men of the bible. What's the purpose? I realize that it does make the body fall into subjection to the spirit but for me it really showed me how fragile I really am. Sounds funny thinking about me being fragile, I am 6"1 276 pounds. (Don't judge me) I read a scripture today that inspired me and moved me in my spirit. Mark 4:4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" At first I am like "YA right" believe me I can live on bread alone especially if I deep fry it and throw some beans and cheese on it, Right? Yet fasting today showed me that yes my physical body can live on bread alone but the spiritual I cannot. Bread the basic food. It's simply doesn't taste like much and just gets you by. I don't want to live that type of Christian life. One that is boring where I just show up to church twice a week and I am just getting by. Yet when we dive into Gods word I realize that it fills my sprit like some carna asada tacos feel my stomach. It's not only enough its more than enough. The more I read it and consume it the more I long for it and I realize how fulfilling it is. Don't just get by with your relationship with Christ. Don't just have a basic relationship with him. Young adults be encouraged today in your fast. Dive right into Gods word and consume it. Allow him speak a life changing word into your spirit. I can promise you He is enough, matter of fact it He's more than enough.
