Matthew 4v1-2

Matt Deisen | January 17, 2021 | Duration: 36 minutes


As we peel back the layers and journey deeper into simplicity, it is only a matter of time before our flesh begins to fight back. We each find within ourselves “the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” (1 John 2v16). How do we overcome these strongholds in our life, and enter into greater freedom in Christ? Fasting is one tool at our disposal.
