CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Just like the parking lot at JUCO that will be under construction the next 18 months, we are under construction in our lives every day.  Being under construction isn’t just the physical construction like me losing 40 pounds in the last couple of years.  Our spiritual construction is critical to our development as a HIM.  Some days, I do a decent jobs but most I do not.  That’s why it’s so important in F3 to lead, support, encourage, listen, etc. each other.

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. – Romans 12:1

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.  – 1 Corinthians 10:31

…but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. – 1 Timothy 4:8

I can do all this through him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
An excerpt from Day 2 of “Known- Finding Deep Friendships in a Shallow World”
Theologian Paul Tillich articulated the distinction beautifully when he said, “Language…has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.” One is toxic. The other is life giving.
The alone we speak of here is the toxic kind. Almost anything can trigger it. Aloneness unchecked turns us in on ourselves and destroys perspective. The gathered pain is an inch-by-inch slide off an emotional cliff. It is isolating. Left unresolved, it is a cancer.
Who chooses to be alone and disoriented in the dark? No one. Who wants to experience moments of unbridled joy or great hardship by themselves? No one. Human contact is life itself.
It is important to remember that F3 is intended to be more than just a fitness class. It is a venue for relationships. F3 is an excellent way to prevent loneliness for men.

    CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
    Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the Peacemakers for they shall be called children of God.”  Are you a Peacemaker? Or do you help stir dissent as I often find myself doing, sometimes without even knowing it.  With over 11 years in law enforcement, my job is literally to help keep the peace.  But, this responsibility lies with all of us in almost every aspect of our lives, especially our relationships with others.  Stirring dissent, whether it is engaging in gossip or complaining about someone, ruins your witness for Christ.
