Intensity is important, but for short duration.  Forget the hour long meetings, hour long back-breaker workouts – strive for 10-20 minutes of high intensity every hour and make those moments count.  Do this in your “service” – to God, country, family, friends, and service for those who you don’t know, and yourself.

Armor of God
Eph 6:10
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

‭‭What was the purpose of the belt in Roman armor?
Everything is held together by the belt.
Protection, starting point for weapons allows for everything to work together.
The Truth…is Jesus, the Bible. The word is what all things should be based on.

The Word (BOM):
I want to share about today being election day- live a life worthy of being elected (a political election or a spiritual election). Easy to sit back and complain- be a difference maker. How do we make a difference? By loving those we come in contact with everyday. Love wins, it is the greatest way. We come to F3 for more than the physical exercise. We long to be a part of something greater than ourselves. Go forth in love today!

Writers inspired by God and separated by several centuries wrote these words of advice to encourage Christians:

Old Testament states the following: Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

New Testament letter stated the following: Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

We must be “on guard” against Satan at all times to protect our friends and families. Satan is ruthless and cunning and while we would never intentionally let down our guard and let him attack our family, we must always “guard our heart” to defeat him.

The PAX repeated the phrase “Guard your heart” twice for emphasis on what to remember from the session and we closed with a prayer to guard the PAX families, a prayer of wisdom for our political leaders during the election and after, and finally a prayer of thankfulness for Jesus paying the ultimate sacrifice for us.
