14Then the disciples of John came to him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples do not fast?” 15And Jesus said to them, “The wedding guests cannot mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them, can they? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast. 16No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old cloak, for the patch pulls away from the cloak, and a worse tear is made. 17Neither is new wine put into old wineskins; otherwise, the skins burst, and the wine is spilled, and the skins are destroyed; but new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved.” (Matthew 9:14-17, NRSV)
Does Jesus say we shouldn’t fast?
No, He doesn’t. Jesus says there is a time for everything. We can not fast while Jesus is with us, but when He is taken, then we can fast.
And we need to watch what we do, for somethings are good and others are not.
We need to follow after Jesus and do what God is leading us to do and know that it will all work out.
