It’s a good question. It is a common thing for people to fast now-a-days, especially when it comes to health reasons, but why do Christians fast? It is a discipline all throughout the Bible and I believe a key to take your faith deeper. In fact if you look at the most influential people in scripture you’ll find that they lived lives that included fasting as a regular religious fasting. So the short answer is that Christians fast in order to improve there faith.
Is there more to fasting than just improving your faith?
