We ran the hill in the dark
5 burpees at the top 5 burpees at the bottom
We ran that for 30 minutes or so then ran toward the flag stopped at each light pole for 10 flutters, 10 mountain climbers, 10 squats
I stopped a little early to read scripture the most important part!
“We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.”
Romans 15:1-7 ESV
If we claim to follow Christ then we have job to do when it comes to living day to day for the lord and shining His light. We can’t do the work outside of Christ. Through His word it brings us Encouragement and Endurance. We have to allow the Holy Spirit to manifest Jesus in and through us. We need to build each other up in the word of God and not the worldly comments we make at these workouts and in our group text. That’s not the spiritual encouragement we need to have for true in endurance for our walk with Christ. We are to bring God glory with one voice in accord with Jesus! Are we bringing God glory in the things we say, the things we do in the F3 group? It’s more than working out and it is fellowship but as a believer in Jesus ask yourself if what your doing and what you’re saying is bringing glory to God?
We can’t just be acceptable and comfortable to the world and its ways if we are believers then we will look different. F3 should look different from the world and in my opinion we are slowly conforming to the world around us and it’s closing in fast! Stand firm and faithful in the word of God and be different.
Wake up everyday wanting to give the encouragement and endurance of the scriptures to someone and bring glory to God!
