Fasting is willfully giving up something for a length of time. For Christians, we fast in order to put ourselves in a spiritually vulnerable state. When we go without, we must find something to fulfill us, and when done in a correct spirit that something we find fulfillment in is God.
People traditionally fast from food and drink, but sometimes people fast from speech, media or certain activities. Personally speaking, I’ve fasted from not only food, but everything to television to hot showers (the latter a good deal more difficult to give up than the former).
What about you? Have you ever fasted?
