PreFlight. The Spiritual Discipline of fasting is all about increasing in us our sensitivity, our level of expectation of that day when we will enter into His glory, when our redemption will be completely consummated.
PreFlight. We work hard, we strive to make sense of this life, of the here and now, but that cannot be accomplished unless we consider the glory that is to come. It is because the Triune God of the Universe has invaded our daily life that what we do here echos in eternity.
PreFlight Fasting and praying provide an opportunity to reset our scale of values, allowing us to find delight in the simple things, at the same time that enhance our expectations for the day we will be in the presence of the Triune God of the Universe.
My personal story is extraordinary not because of what I contributed to it, but because the Great Author, the Triune God of the Universe and History, is extraordinary in and by Himself. And I feel the need to act, to speak out, to write because behavior matters, Truth matters, reality matters.
