One of the most important things about the exercising of Christ is to start at home. All the ministries, bible studies, prayer meeting & church meetings are good. They should not come before your home ministry. Your relationship with God & the application of your relationship should be visible in your home & family life. Inline your home life & relationship with God 1st.
This Christian race is challenging. It's difficult, down right HARD! We will never be perfect so why even try?
When ideas come for me, they often happen in some sense of movement. The one part of my life that I have done almost as long as living is dance. I could see the logo clearly as a vision & with the help of Mike B it is now materialized. Crosses have several meanings & after creating this vision we unpacked this cross which is a combination of two different crosses. The Shephards Cross & the Chi-ro cross. The stick image is leaping to the cross as a sign of moving to Christ in exercise. We always have an invitation to come to Jesus Christ. We have to take the action steps. There are several scriptures that suport this, one of these is: James 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

Shortcuts in life mean you skip some basic fundamentals that WILL sooner or later catch up with you. Better to take each step in the process of life then to skip things that can prove to be detrimental later. I hear the question, “What do you mean”? In the wisely worded question of my mother, “What happens to an apple that falls of the tree too soon?”
There are many groups, teams & organizations that exist under the banner of Ministry yet there is no change or difference in their members. In Ministry we are under the submission of Jesus Christ. John 5:30 – “I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me.” Where is the ME in this?
We have a responsibility each day to live for Christ. Act 17:28 In Him we live & move & have our being. So we must make the most of every moment we have with everything that we are doing. Challenge yourself by asking yourself "How does this give glory to God?" This can also help us funnel out the miscellaneous non-sense. How are you exercising Christ in your life daily?
