I’ve always believed the idea behind fasting is to deny the physical body in order to strengthen the soul. Fasting, if done properly (Matthew 6:16f), can help put priorities into focus.

SInce subjection is the watchword of the Christian life, teaching our bodies to be subject can help us learn the principle.
