February 1 – March 31, 2016
For 2016 our theme is Back To The Basics, which reflects our conviction that our lives should be based on the foundational truths in the word of God. When asked about the great commandment, Jesus responded by saying, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Our desire is to live in a manner that reflects the Lord’s instruction.
We recognize the challenge that the flesh brings to loving God and loving others. The Apostle Paul said in Galatians 5:17, “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” We are engaging in a 60-day fast from February 1 through March 31, 2016. During this time we will focus on allowing the grace of God to take preeminence in our lives as we submit to God’s plan for us.
Our fast will be fortified by our time in the Word of God together. We will prayerfully read one chapter a day that will include Matthew, Mark and Romans.
During the fast, everyone is encouraged to fast as the Lord directs. There will be specific days when we will fast together. The fast will include not eating specific foods and it will be cumulative. For those who are not medically able to fast, alternatives to fasting should be used. For example, giving up television or video games or cell phone use could be substitutes.
February – no sweets, sodas or coffee
- Week 1, March 1-7 – no pork
- Week 2 March 8-14 – no beef
- Week 3 – March 15-21 – no poultry (chicken, turkey, duck)
- Week 4 – March 22-31 – only vegetables, fruit, nuts and beans
We believe that God will bless us as we fast and pray together.
