resolutions

Challies has put up a resolutions post. Good stuff. I have already decided to read the Bible through again using this plan.

My interest was piqued by John Piper’s recommendation to fast in 2009.

Here is his recommendation for how to fast.

How to Fast

Pick a day of the week or a day of the month and plan to fast in 2009. Plan which meal or meals to skip. Skip them entirely, or do it with only juice or only water. There are no rules. There is only spiritual hunger being spoken and stoked with physical hunger.

Take some of the time you would have spent eating and read some scripture and take time to tell God why you are doing this and what you long for.

He then gives six biblical aims of fasting. Go take a look.
