Count-O-Rama, Name-A-Rama, and Announce-O-Rama

Ephesians 6:13-17 Talks about putting the full armor of God under to protect against the evil one. The Sword of the Spirit, Breastplate of Righteousness, Helmet of Salvation, Shield of Faith, Belt of Truth, and the Sandals of the Gospel of Peace. As we each put on this armor and fight evil as HIMs. We are apart of a special community that allows us to do that and to look after each other and fight for one another as well!

The PAX was eager for a unique Bandwagon Beatdown as we went through the Ring of Fire today. The PAX was forgiving as the original plan for the Ring of Fire was altered because of the weather. Wind and Rain made it hard for the exercise cards to stay in their correct places. Therefore, the PAX completed each exercise of the Ring of Fire together! Spirits were high and the PAX always leaves everyone feeling encouraged.

Matthew 16:24-26 – Christ made the ultimate sacrifice in leaving his Heavenly throne and coming down to die on a cross to save us and give us true life in him. In response through our loving relationship with him, we are called to sacrifice ourselves and live for him above all. Everything else in this world will never be enough no matter much it tells us it will be. It will never satisfy or fulfill us. Christ is the only thing that can. By sacrificing ourselves to live in Christ in our new selves, we are given the ability through Christ to sacrifice ourselves in relationship with our families, friends, classmates, co-workers, and to share Christ by doing so. So let us not choose our on way or ourselves but choose the way of Christ. This is part of the core of being HIM (High Impact Man)!

The PAX took Monday morning by storm. They worked their tails off and never stopped moving. The encouragement from the PAX this morning was phenomenal, pushing each other and affirming the Q’s by their words and efforts. Running Cardiac Hill together is always great times with the PAX, conquering the feat together and encouraging one another at the top. Great effort to start the week!
