Hungering for God Series, Part-5: Reflecting The Purpose that God Chose for Fasting By Cultivating Christ’s Compassion For Our Neighbors Isaiah 58:1-14 Our Almighty God is not prejudiced, He is not unjust, nor is He oppressive.

As we open to Mark 2:18-22 we are examining the Biblical topic of:
Fasting: Hungering for God, Longing for Christ, Denying Our Flesh & Experiencing God’s Grace.
This is our study because we all need to ask ourselves an honest question. By doing a personal inventory we can see whether we are paddling against the current of our culture or just floating along with the flow of everyone around us in life.
What’s the question? Simply this:
How’s Your Hunger For God Today?
