In our consumer culture, fasting might be the hardest Christian discipline - and perhaps one of the most necessary and important. 

Jesus says to his disciples 'When you fast...' not 'If you fast...' Along with praying and giving, Jesus simply assumes that this will be part of normal Christian living for his followers. Fasting can quickly reveal our idolatries and also be one of the ways God sets us free from the false religion of consumerism, which puts comfort and convenience above all else. But many of us today do not really know either how or why to fast.

This sermon was preached at Pakenham Lakeside Church on Sunday 2nd September, 2016.
