While googling strict vegans, I realized that the term defines people who choose a lifestyle which prohibits the use of animals or animal products in diet, clothing etc. Consequently, animal products such as meat, fish, poultry, honey, eggs as well as dairy products are excluded from these people’s plate.
Furthermore, vegans don’t use products made by fur, wool, leather, feathers etc. They follow a strictly vegetarian diet for the sake of physical and mental health, and also for environmental, religious, or personal reasons. What’s more, the 1st of November has been established as the World Vegan Day, during which several events and campaigns for animals» rights and environmental protection are held. Behind this lifestyle there is a whole philosophy and ethics regarding longevity and love for mother-nature and the environment.
«All well and good», I thought while finishing my research, «but why someone would choose this strict way of life? What are the inner motives?» Then it hit me: «Why do I fast? Is it because of some philosophy or is it just a nutrition leading to longevity?«
Then I remembered Jesus» words I would often hear as a little girl in church: «Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting». Fasting from food and the desires of the flesh, alongwhith our prayers and spiritual conflict give us the strength to fight the devil and resist temptations with the grace of God. We fast on Wednesday and Friday in order to remember how grateful we should be to our Lord for His suffering and bearing the cross for our salvation. We abstain from eating specific food for a certain period of time as a means to be spiritually prepared for a great event…
So, while some people celebrate the 1st of November by fasting from «carcasses» in the name of a healthy diet, we start fasting in mid November for the Birth of Him who came to earth to save each and everyone of us. He came and he is still coming as our real father, to save us, to transform us from sinful dead slaves to reborn humans in flesh and spirit. The physical fasting for the birth of Christ help us spiritually. Since we put flesh aside, we can indulge in prayer, Bible study, the giving of love and spiritual warfare so as to truly celebrate Christmas. Now that the Christmas Lent is about to start, let’s fast with joy, pray with clean heart, and exercise love towards all in order to receive the newborn Lord in our heart.
