Why Should You Fast?

Do you know why YOU need to fast - and fast often? Why does God enjoin fasting on His people? How should you fast - and what are the pitfalls you should avoid? Your salvation may depend on the answers! TO MANY people in the world, "fast" is merely the opposite of "slow"! They do not know what it MEANS to voluntarily "fast" or "go without food or water" for a certain length of time. Such an idea would sound absurd-incredible like the foolish, wild-eyed ravings of a fanatic! If you told a worldly acquaintance you were going to fast - go without food or drink for a few days - that person would think you'd "gone off your rocker!" "Why, don't be crazy," he would likely exclaim. "You'll STARVE to death!" Which goes to show how IGNORANT this world IS, of the way of God and the plain teachings of the Bible!
