Crossfit - Day 19 - Invest in Others and Trust God's Reward
Begin your time with God in prayer.
Praise God for who He is. Confess any sin so that nothing blocks your fellowship with Him. Ask God to use the Spirit and the Word to transform your life.
Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart.
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:1-2
"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us. Surely you remember, brothers, our toil and hardship; we worked night and day in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you." 1 Thessalonians 2:8-9
· As you run your race today, what is hindering you that you need to throw off so that you can fix your eyes on Jesus?
· Why were the disciples able to delight in such a ministry?
· Ask God whom He wants you to love and minister to today. What sacrifices will you need to make so that you will not be a burden to anyone?
Father, thank you for all of the people you have put in my life to show me my need for a Savior and to help me grow. Help me to learn to show the same love to others. Give me the courage to remove those things in my schedule that hinder me from serving others. Help me to fix my eyes on You as I run my race today. Amen.
