John Piper on Fasting

My assumption so far has been that good things can do great damage. Oxen and fields and marriage can keep you out of the Kingdom of heaven. 

Which is why Jesus says, 

No one of you can be my disciple who does not bid farewell to all of his own possessions (Luke 14:33). 

Anything can stand in the way of true discipleship – not just evil, and not just food, but anything. 

Nor should it be surprising that the greatest competitors for our devotion and affection for God would be some of his most precious gifts.

 Be inspired!
