The Fast of Daniel serves as an incentive to get you away from distractions and secular information for 21 days, so that you grow closer to God. We explain it better on the above link; you will also find the details of another purpose which involves five daily tasks. It’s available to those who want to participate during the Fast. If you haven’t done it yet, I highly recommend that you do.
As for those who have already done the tasks, I’m launching a new purpose for this Fast of Daniel: The John Purpose.
What is the John Purpose?
It’s where you read and meditate on a chapter of John every day during the Fast. There are 21 chapters in total. Starting from Chapter 1 you are going to read a chapter of John everyday, from September 23rd until the end of the Fast, which is October 13th.
Note that it’s not simply to “read.” We’re going to reflect on what we read. To reflect means to think about what you’re reading, to inquire, dive in to the text, and especially to take lessons for your life.
Just to help you out, I will be posting my daily meditation of each chapter on this blog. That doesn’t mean that you will be restricted to what I wrote. Remember that, the word of God is dynamic and through one verse it can say something totally different to you than to me. I also want to encourage you to leave a comment on what you learned while meditating on the daily chapter. Write your thoughts here on the blog. Surely, it will bless others.
