We’re prone to think of fasting in negative terms. Fasting is abstaining. It’s going without food and drink. Perhaps the reason so many of us fast so infrequently is because we think of fasting mainly as what we’re going without rather than what we’re getting.
But Christian fasting is not only going without. It is not simply abstaining. The goal of Christian fasting, in fact, is not going without but getting. Our abstaining always serves some greater end and purpose — some eventual gain, not loss. Christian fasting is abstaining for the sake of some specific Christian purpose, or it is not truly Christian.
