ROCK CHURCH August 2013 FASTING
Fasting Focus: Once again we will be fasting “bread”. You say, “Why bread again?” That is a good question. Bread because we continue to be in the learning stage and to focus on God as our source, our “Daily Bread”. John 6:35, 48.
Prayer Focus: Before you read the Word each day, pray for understanding, wisdom, and purpose.
Daily Reading: (Read one chapter per day.)
Read Ecclesiastes which has 12 chapters.
Solomon searched for satisfaction almost as though he was conducting a scientific experiment. Through this process, he discovered that life without God is a long and fruitless search for enjoyment, meaning, and fulfillment. Rock Church, true happiness is not in our power to accumulate or attain because we always want more than we can have. No true pleasure or happiness is possible without God. Without Him, satisfaction is a lost search.
Key Verse (12:13)
Read Galatians (6 chapters). Galatians is our chapter of Christian freedom. We are not under the jurisdiction of Jewish laws or traditions, but faith in Christ which bought true freedom from sin. Key Verse (5:1)
Read Philippians (4 chapters). Paul shows us how to live successful Christian lives. We can become mature by being so identified with Christ that His attitude of humility and self-sacrifice rules us.
Key Verse (4:4)
Read Colossians (4 chapters). Because our sin has been forgiven and we have been reconciled to God, we have a union with Christ that can never be broken.
Key Verse (2:9-10)
Read I Thessalonians (5 chapters). One day all believers, both those who are alive and those who have died will be united with Christ. To those Christians who die before Christ’s return, there is hope, the hope of the resurrection of the body. HE has RISEN! HE has RISEN indeed!!
Key Verse (4:14)

ONE PERSON FASTING IS POWERFUL, BUT WHEN A GROUP OF PEOPLE BEGIN TO FAST, IT IS MULTIPLIED STRENGTH! IT IS MULTIPLIED POWER!
