Hunger For God
Passage: Mark 2:18-20, Matthew 6:16-18
Introduction: “When you fast”
I. THE BRIDEGROOM HAS COME
"We were made to feast. Not in order to become full, but because we are full. Feasting to fill emptiness is not feasting. It is coping.” – Justin Whitmel Earley
II. THE BRIDEGROOM HAS GONE
"Fasting is the hunger of homesickness from God.” – John Piper
- Discuss the following quote from John Piper: "The greatest adversary of love for God is not his enemies but his gifts."
- What gift of God in your life is the greatest threat to your love for God Himself?
- Is your fasting and your feasting in proper balance in your life?
- What would a weekly 24-hr fast (not just from food but from any of God's gifts) look like?
