In her talk "Fasting in the 21st Century", based on Matthew 6 verses 16-18, Assistant Pastor Denise DeOliveira says, "Throughout the Old and New Testaments there are many examples of fasting, all of which are good, profitable and beneficial. Fasting today helps us gain a new perspective and a new reliance upon God". Through this video you'll discover that fasting, in an act of humility, and joyfulness of Spirit, is not only easy, but it changes us - not God.

16 "When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 17 But when you fast, put oil on your head and wash your face, 18 so that it will not be obvious to others 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.
