What are you gambling on in your life

THE SCENE:
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER
WARM-O-RAMA:

This was a brief warmup, only a couple of minutes and we got moving to avoid the cold/wind.
THA-THANG:
The entire workout was performed under the cover near the school entrance close to the baseball field.
We used workout dice, two with exercises and one with reps or time limits.
WE would roll all three, and do the two exercises by the number of reps or time rolled.  At one point we rolled 90 second intervals 4 times in a row, and the workout was way more challenging than anticipated

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
What are we gambling with in our lives?  The entire workout was left to chance with the dice.  We are taking some of those same chances with health, jobs, relationships, etc.  Don’t be passive, take ownership of these, and make it happen, don’t wait.
MOLESKIN:
I made a Dr’s appt that I have been putting off for a very long time.

We ran loops around the campus keeping the body temps warm.
At the church columns, we did lunges, and then timed wall squats.
At the statue of Jesus near the gym, we did 7’s with merkins and dips.

Quote from St. Augustine: 

Now, may our God be our hope. He Who made all things is better than all things. He Who made all beautiful things is more beautiful than all of them. He Who made all mighty things is more mighty than all of them. He Who made all great things is greater than all of them. Learn to love the Creator in His creature, and the maker in what He has made.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

The Equalizer will start doing “Heavy” workouts on Wednesdays. While today was obviously Monday, this will start to be the norm on Wednesdays moving forward with the official start on April 5th. Get some diversity in our workouts and promise some of those guys who want to have a little less running in their lives an opportunity to get some work in.

Ephesians 3:14-21 NKJV

“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

God gives us some units of measure for His love in this text. He says there is a width, length, depth, and height, and Paul prays that we are able to comprehend those measurements. I ask you, if you had to measure it, what is the width of Gods love? Infinite. The length? Infinite. The depth? Infinite. The height? Infinite. Can we comprehend infinite? No, but God can, and when we are saved God through the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us. Paul prays that we re filled with ALL that fullness of God. The infinite, omnipotent, omnipresent, Holy God of creation dwells within us. Gentlemen, we have access to that width, length, depth, and height of Gods love. Let us show our spouses, children, parents, and neighbors that love this week. Amen?
