Sharpen Your Affections With Fasting

This week I want to recommend this short article written by David Mathis for the Desiringgod blog. Last Sunday we began a 40 day fast at our church, and I think this article comes in handy in rethinking the value fasting can have in our lives. Mathis proposes that “...if we are awakened to see fasting for the joy it can bring, as a special means of God’s grace to strengthen and sharpen Godward affections, then we might find ourselves holding a powerful new tool for enriching our enjoyment of Jesus."
