Welcome to the Gospel Series- The Discourses of Jesus:   www.wordinspire.org

Discourse: “Fasting unto the Lord”
Reference: Matthew 6:16-18
Theme: Whatever we do Unto the Lord is meant to be done Discreetly and in Secret
Context: Humility and Devotion versus Religious Exhibitions of Hypocritical Pride

Matthew 6:5-15
When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show men they are fasting. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, so that it will not be obvious to men that you are fasting, but only to your Father, who is unseen; and your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
