Wellness practitioner Jackie Mulligan joins Brother Elijah and Father Mark-Mary to discuss the spiritual and physical benefits of fasting. Why should Christians fast? Here are two of the reasons discussed in this video:
It cultivates and sustains intimacy with God. It makes our intentions amazingly powerful (see Mark 9:29).
Jackie says, “We rarely ever grow when we’re comfortable.” So if you’re at the point where you want to go deeper in your spiritual life and establish a more intimate relationship with God, pay attention to all these great reasons for fasting mentioned in this video. If you have tried fasting (for more than just Ash Wednesday and Good Friday) but feel like you’re losing sight of the benefits, this video is a great reminder of those benefits. If you are certain you don’t like fasting, have tried it and feel like it doesn’t help you, or think it’s a silly idea and have no interest in being convinced otherwise, then this video is not for you.
