Denying self

Many times I miss being an evangelical because of how easy it was. It required very little of me other than showing up when I felt like it. Tuesday we begin the Christmas Lent / Nativity Fast. I hate fasting. It feels like death. And that’s the point. We cannot learn to deny ourselves unless we fast. Fasting is the starting point of self denial. It is essential to our salvation.
