60IN60 Day 8 - Mon Sept 13

It's Day 8 and we're in Luke 8.

One reason to be in the Bible regularly? It provides the answers to life's most pressing questions: "Why am I here?" "What value does my life have?" "What does God want out of me?" "What does a life well spent look like?" For all the time we spend daily on trivial things, it's essential that we spend some time on the big questions. 

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 21 - True believers are not those who say they believe in Jesus, but those who "put it into practice."

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Comments and Questions:
- "What really stands out to me in today's reading is that John doubted.  He even sent two of his disciples to ask Jesus is it really was Him or if they should look for another.  Jesus didn't scold him for his doubt.  In fact, He went on to say that John as greatest of those who have been born of women."  
- "Thank you so much on your comments on fasting that certainly answered so much.   I also searched and found a good site on how to fast and for beginners.   Some of your comments were included.     Of course I now have other questions.  1.  For a beginner do you recommend a short time such as 9 am through 9 pm? 2.  At first pray and read our bible to grow closer to God or pray and read for a certain desire, such as seeing people saved?  Appreciate your guidance.  Thank you." - For a beginner, I would recommend a two-meal fast.  Don't eat breakfast or lunch and then resume eating with dinner (or something similar).  It's enough to feel some hunger pains without anything extreme.  It is good to spend some time reading the Bible and praying during the fast, especially toward the end of the time.  If you have a specific desire (like seeing people saved), it's certainly a good thing to add that to your prayer time during the fast.  There is an excellent, practical chapter on fasting in Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline, which might be worth your time.
