John 7:21-24

(21) Jesus answered and said to them, "I did one work, and you all marvel. (22) Moses therefore gave you circumcision (not that it is from Moses, but from the fathers), and you circumcise a man on the Sabbath.

The Forgotten Promises

by Mike Fuhrer

In casual conversations with brethren, fasting has occasionally come up for discussion, and it turns out that it is the rare individual who fasts regularly. Years ago, church members were encouraged to fast monthly, but Scripture does not require any particular regimen. The only fast that God strictly commands is the annual fast on the Day of Atonement. The Bible, however, contains many examples of fasting. David made it a practice to fast for those who were ill, even for his enemies: "[T]hey repay me with evil for good, rendering me all forlorn. When they were ill, I wore the sackcloth, I …
