18 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?
19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
BE TOTALLY ENCOURAGED TODAY. CHRIST SAID HE WOULD NEVER LEAVE US BUT WOULD BE WITH US TILL THE END OF THE EARTH. HE SAID HE WAS IN US AND US IN HIM. DON'T LET OTHERS AND OUTSIDE INFLUENCES CRITICIZE YOU FOR NOT FOLLOWING THEIR LEGALISM. FOLLOW CHRIST. LET HIM BE YOUR GUIDE AND YOUR ROCK. NEVER BE MOURNFUL, SAD OR PESSIMISTIC. JESUS SAID THAT HE WOULD BE RIGHT THERE WITH US THROUGH EVERY TRIAL AND TEMPTATION. BE FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST TODAY. KEEP THE BRIDEGROOM WITH YOU ALWAYS.
