Crossfit - Day 3 - Take Up Your Cross
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.
The first step toward spiritual success is to deny ourselves. The second step is to take up our cross.
Let God’s Word penetrate your head and your heart.
"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:1-2
· According to these verses, what’s involved in taking up the cross of Christ?
· When are you most tempted to be conformed to the world?
· What is your biggest obstacle to allowing the Word of God to transform you?
Father, today I offer my body to You. Help me to die to myself and to choose to live each minute for You. Show me when the world starts to tug at my heart. Give me the discipline to read and meditate on your Word daily so that my life will be transformed. Amen.
