FASTING SERMON OUTLINES

by Ernest Easley

All right ... now that we've enjoyed a good meal ... I want to talk to you tonight about the lost art of Fasting! Last week we learned that there are several kinds of fasting. For instance .. there is a Normal fast. That's when you abstain from food for a certain amount of time. There is also a Partial Fast. That's when your fast is limited to certain kinds of food. Then there is an Absolute Fast. That's when you refuse food and drink. Then there is a Corporate Fast. That involves a group of believers. And the...

I do not come as a guru, professing to know everything about fasting. I do come with some experience, having read and studied it very deeply in order to be prepared to bring you this brief message. However, I could actually spend several weeks on this intriguing subject. Hopefully, I will give you enough now to whet your appetite so that you'll...

''Energized'' is all about being invigorated, refueled and fired up to live on mission. God has His hand on you individually and He desires to energize you. We must become the people who will pray with great faith: Come Holy Spirit, fill me, use me, guide me - let me be energized...

IS IT BIBLICAL? IS IT FOR TODAY? 1. Before Moses received the 10 commandments from God, he fasted and prayed. Exodus 34:28 Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights without eating bread or drinking water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant - the Ten Commandments. 2.David, a man after God's heart and Israel's...

Fasting is probably one of the least practiced and least popular disciplines of the faith, but yet perhaps one of the most beneficial. In fact, I questioned whether or not to preach about this practice because of the obscurity of it. I'm not sure what comes to your mind when you hear the word ''fast.'' You may think of it like you do wheat germ or flax seed oil. You know...

''Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, To undo heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out...

We are entering into a time of consecration or prayer and fasting as a church. Over the next 21 days, we will be carving away time and pushing away food (or Facebook or TV or some other habit) to spend time with God in prayer. Notice I said Prayer and Fasting, not Fasting and Prayer because Prayer is the priority. Fasting is not...

The same principle applies to praying. The Lord wants us to pray. But he wants us to remember who we are praying to when we do. This is not just an old problem. I know that preachers and leaders who lead public prayer have to deal with this. We can be tempted to use big words...

There are times when I may come to you and it may be more motivational; today is more informational. You see there are several styles of ministry, several characteristics of the way Jesus lived that you and I need to grab hold of if we are to learn how to walk like He did, talk like He did and love our husbands and our wives and our families just like He loved the…

Introduction: With or Without a Mask A few years ago, two men held up a bank in Dallas. For reasons I do not know, only one of them wore a mask. In ten or fifteen minutes they were captured. Can you imagine one of those men standing before the judge and saying, "Your Honor, I admit I robbed the bank. I admit that I did it. But at least I went in there without a mask. I was not a hypocrite. Everybody saw who I was."...

16 ''Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to...

by Dr. Ed Young

Not too many look hungry tonight! I was real tempted to do some interviews tonight walk up and down these aisles - but I didn't do it.... to try to answer some questions maybe we can do that again .... about fasting.... because you didn't do it in 30 or 40 minutes or whatever; but there are - just as a precursory kind of...

Jesus Christ was asked by the disciples of John, ''Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but Your disciples do not fast?'' He answered: ''Can the friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the day will come when the bridegroom will be...

if you hadn't eaten for 5 days, what would be something you would dream about eating…the situation we just imagined is a scenario God wants you to experience, physical fasting is essential to Christianity.tell story of first time fasting as a Christian…the eternal part of who we are hungers, needs attention, needs to...

First he is saying when you fast don't make a big deal about it because the Pharisees in Jesus' day, whenever they would fast they would not bathe, they would not comb their hair and they would act real serious and somber like they were about to faint so that people would say oh, they must be fasting. He is so spiritual and Jesus...
