This four-week series explores four spiritual routines: Bible reading/study, prayer, fasting, and Christ-centered community through groups. There is no better time of the year to establish or re-establish new routines and habits to grow in our daily walk with Christ.

God never intended for us to walk alone. Authentic community in which we deeply know others and are known by others is necessary for a victorious faith-life. To follow God faithfully, we must share our lives with other believers.

Matthew 4:1–4; 9:15
Jesus not only showed us how to fast but promised that his followers would fast as well. Fasting draws us closer to God by starving our flesh and feeding our spirit. We fast to help us focus on God and the things of his kingdom.
