In thinking about a recent and popular "Daniel Fast"...I am reminded of how hunger can move our desires from what we are wanting to more of what we are really needing. We don't often "need" unhealthy snacks or fast-food but our desires beg to differ. The basic diet supplement are factored into my eating habits, but my desires for things that are not really healthy most often take control. A good exercise for me has been a drastic change in eating...or at least in the last few
The treasure is the most important part of walking out our faith in Jesus Christ. According to 2 Corinthians 4, we have the light of the glorious gospel living within us. So like Apostle Paul, we die daily to ourselves, that earthen vessel to that His Glory can shine through us. It really takes the pressure off of us to "perform" if we can only see past ourselves to allow Him to be Lord and not just Hero when we need Him.
