It has been a while since Grit  was closed and I was feeling a little rusty this morning. But with 5 Pax showing up for a workout it really energized my spirit. Some had never done a Ruck workout at Grit before so I didn’t want to fail these men. Some of the pax are preparing for a goruck event soon so I wanted to give them a taste of some of the things they may do. So here we go…

Devo: Getting better

The goal of getting better is better than getting better.

Paul says that salvation and getting better are “not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:9).

Every failure you have is an effort on God’s part to bring you to the end of yourself…and getting to the end of yourself is what this thing is all about.

Your sin is God’s gift…when you know it. Your obedience is a curse…when you know it.

Have you come to the end of yourself yet? Just give up and admit, “I just can’t do this anymore.” and let God take over.


With love, your brother
