You have an identity, the question is…is it the right one?

    • When: 08/22/18
    • QIC: Boomer
    • The PAX: Mongo, Polymer, Rasta, Bertolli, Oglethorpe, PCH, Kodak(Welcome, brother!), BubbleWrap, Pink Panther

Warm up
A bunch of planking in various positions
Some merkin action

The Thang
Low, slow squats but listen for when the Q says, “hold” and you hold your position OR go to burpees when the Q says go into burpess
Holding LSS, arms out in front, then out to the side.
Still holding a seated LSS, arms out to side, go into Moroccan Night Clubs
More LSS, then go into 5 burpess, OYO
More LSS with another hold

Tight circle up and go into BCDC, which stands for Boomer Calf Death Circle (feel free to use it).  Come together using each other for support in a circle, start with one man and count calf raises in cadence to a certain number, we did 7.  When the first man reaches 7, the man next to him takes over without missing a rep.  This continues all he way around the circle and the calves are mooing when your done and these are done in cadence, no single count.

Mozy down to the far parking lot and partner up.  The timer is a lap around the building and you and your partner needed to complete;
1. 100 Merkins
2. 200 flutter kicks
3. 300 low, slow squats

Large lap of the campus back to the flag.  Circle up and various ab work, as others called out exercises.
5 burpees to finish it up


3rd F – Romans 8:15-17
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

I shared how 2018 has been a journey for me in Identity.  I “knew” what the bible says about this.  I am a son of God, a child of God, co-heir with Christ, holy and blameless in God’s sight (See Romans 8, Ephesians 1, Colossians 3, Philippians 2-4 for further study) but honestly I didn’t really believe all of it and it was leading to a life of fear, deep down, very deceptive and just plain scary.  I was trying to control my life, my family and hose around me all because I didn’t believe in who I really am.
Looking at these two verses of Romans 8, we have the Holy Spirit in us for those of us who have accepted God’s free gift of grace and salvation through Jesus Christ alone (What about you?).  The SAME Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead lives in US!  The opposite of faith is fear and as children of God, there is no fear in our relationship with God our perfect heavenly father.  Every false, worldly religion is man trying to become good enough to get to (ascend) to their “god” in some way.  To earn their god’s acceptance by doing enough good works, etc.  There is no relationship, security or love in this. That’s why every world religion is simply false.  God as father is exactly that and we get to cry, “Abba” which is better translated, Daddy.  To those of you who are fathers, you know when a child of yours says Daddy, it melts your heart.  I know it does mine.

This is a very small glimpse into the love of our heavenly Father, who deeply desires a relationship with those who would call on His name. You can’t read His word and reach any other conclusion.  God as Father who sent His son to pay the price for our sin, because we can’t earn it.  We can’t do enough good, we can’t make ourselves holy and perfect like Him.  Please quit trying to earn His love in your life.  Please quit being afraid of what other people will think.  Please quit pushing God away because your afraid of losing control of your life.  Run to your heavenly Abba, your heavenly Daddy who can’t wait to wrap you up in His arms.

Stop doubting and believe…

Love to all,
