“You can’t worship God as a means to anything. That is, the affections of the heart for God are an end in themselves.” -John Piper
21 PAX got up to “punch Friday in the face.” The workout proved to be pretty difficult, but the PAX worked well to encourage each other throughout the morning. Not much mumblechatter on Everest, but I assume that’s because no one could breath (including myself). Lots of sitting at the end of abs indicates a solid beatdown.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuJTqmpBnI0 (Beauty and the Beast- Gaston “the Man”- The world tells us that to be a man we have to be like Gaston. Strong, good looking, skilled, have girls falling at our feet etc. Even the Disney movie Beauty and the Beast portray a manly man in this manner. Larry Crab, famous author, says, “The only way to be manly is to be Godly,” and being Godly looks extremely different than how most men act today. To be Godly is to live a life modeled after Jesus, who freely gave to all of us by sacrificially coming to earth to give himself away, so that through him we may have life. Now, that is MANLY! Giving our life away to others, instead of taking, and trying to live out the life of a “man” that this world portrays.

“There is a way that seems right to man, but in the end it leads to death”- Proverbs 14:12

The pack was ready to get going this AM with several new FNGs in the house to take on their first F3 workout. The PAX hung tough on the LAX field, even in some dark and gloomy conditions and chased after the stars to complete a great DORA workout. Cardiac Hill never disappoints, but only doing it once this morning was a slight tease, more to come later at the next Bandwagon Beatdown!

Manhood is more than being male, it’s about how we do life.  Men are life-givers, not life-suckers.  One problem is when asked, most men can’t give a clear and concise definition of what it means to be a man.  Almost 13 years ago YHC learned a definition of manhood that not only stuck, but has guided me and I am now seeking to impart to my boys.  The definition consists of 4 simple maxims:

Real Men…Reject passivity, accept responsibility, lead courageously and expect a greater reward (God’s reward)

We were created for impact, to bring life to the situations and relationships we find ourselves in.  Today is a new day…don’t memorize the definition, LIVE IT and go be a HIM in your world!

Some mornings are tougher to get to the AO than others…this one was tough for YHC.  But as soon as I got there it felt like home and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else!  The PAX showed up and did the hard thing, and we all got better…AYE!

1 Chronicles 28:20—The Lord declares us to be strong and courageous and to act. We are often paralyzed by fear of failure and expectations and it keeps us from acting. The Lord promises He will be with us until the completion of the service of His kingdom. Our actions serve his Kingdom, and we have to be courageous in order to be HIMs for His kingdom. We are like Peter trying to walk on water. When we take our focus off of His constant support, we lose our courage and we begin to falter, unable to serve Him. It is our honor to be apart of His story and to serve His kingdom. All we have to do is be courageous and act.

PAX came in ready to work and started off hump day right with some sprinting and a mix of workouts. Finished the day crushing the hill while carrying coupons together as a group. Finishing the 11s on the hill could not have been done alone, and the PAX came together to encourage each other through a tough workout. Woodshack finished it off with a new brutal ab workout, the “Never Cross Dolly”.
