FAST Some followers of John the baptizer challenged Jesus as to why His apprentices did not fast. Jesus responded, “DO YOU EXPECT THE GUESTS AT A WEDDING PARTY TO BE SAD AS LONG AS THE BRIDEGROOM IS WITH THEM? OF COURSE NOT! BUT THE DAY WILL COME WHEN THE BRIDEGROOM WILL BE TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM, AND THEN THEY WILL FAST” [Mt 9:15 GN]. Does God guide you to fast?  Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
