Thank you to the 4 other PAX who showed up to The Commons on this muggy gloom to sharpen iron and push each other. It was an awesome time and if you miss it, well, you missed out. Thank you to Jester for allowing YHC to lead this morning.
We began this workout a few minutes early by sharing the F3 Core Principles.
The warmup included the following in 5-Carolina Dry Docks in Cadence, 10 Double Count Jump Lunges (10 Each Leg), 10 Flutters in Cadence, and 10 6-Count Burpees.
After this everyone was pretty much warm, we began the thing. The route was simple . . . around The Commons building. YHC asked the PAX to begin at the flag with the following exercises below, run to the east end of the building and perform the exercises; run to the back and perform the exercises; run to the west end and perform the exercises; and run back to the flag and perform the exercises. If you were to finish first, you were to go back (no planking) and finish with the 6.
Here are the exercises at each location:
10 CDD’s, 10 Double Count Jump Lunges (10 Each Leg), 20 Dbl. Count Flutters (20 Each Leg), and 10 6-Count Burpees.
Then we headed back to the COT where YHC shared from the heart a little.
Thank you again to all PAX who removed themselves from the fartsack this morning to join YHC. It was an honor to serve this AO and to lead you men. Great work was had by all.
Recently I have been reflecting on the current situation in our world. What I have come to conclude is that this situation is not current. It is ongoing and has been since the beginning. People are different, but the issue is the same. I am not talking about the beginning of the founding of the specific countries we live in. I am speaking of the day Adam & Eve decided to eat of the fruit. Since that day, man has been dead, and his heart has not been right.
Ephesians 2:4-10 ‘But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ-by grace you have been saved- and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.’
Paul was speaking to the church of Ephesus and to us in the beginning of this passage concerning their state prior to salvation, and then explained their state after Christ. This passage has been resonating with YHC over the past few months. God has shown us mercy and given us grace through Him. And because of that we have been ‘raised up’ from the dead and seated us along with Christ at His own right hand.
What we are experiencing in our world is a display of the state of man without Christ. Without change in the heart, no change in the world can happen. Policies may be changed; ‘reforms’ may occur; the world may feel different; but will it be different without the changing hearts of man? The things of this world will rust and fade away, but the things of Heaven will last forever.
My challenge to you today is to look first at your heart. Not what is around you, but what is inside you. If you are not spiritually alive, then things may appear to be changing, but they technically are not. Once you have made that heart change, you can be a part of the real change that must occur in this world. A change in the direction of where we need to be heading. The direction of Christ.
Once you know your heart is right, then I challenge you to go out and love others as you love yourself. If you love others in this manner, you will want to serve them, and by serving them they will respect you. Show love and be blessed.
If you do not know how to make this Heart Change for yourself, please let YHC know and we can discuss further.
