CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Compliment. A polite expression of praise or admiration.

 I have never been great at giving or receiving compliments. F3 has given me a lot of practice the past couple of years. There are countless high impact men that show up here and other AOs who are excellent leaders. They see the good in you and me and point it out. 

“Way to kick some ass today, you really pushed it”

“Great Q man” 

“Man that was a killer pace on that run you did yesterday” We are all saying that about Osteen right now and want to know what his secret is. 

“Mermaid, thank you for leading this AO in such a positive and fun atmosphere while at the same time pushing us hard to get better physically, spiritually and as a brotherhood.” 

“Trolley!!!! Thank you for teaching us how to push ourselves way out of our comfort zone”

“Betty, thank you for always having a positive attitude.”

“Jenner, thank you for educating us with real life stories about veterans and walking us through some of their heroic actions” 

“Baby Boomer, thank you for injecting humor in this group and for your creative Qs that are full of painful challenges.” 

“CheatSheet, thank you for my sore upper body and for all the words of encouragement that you preach to us”

“Curveball, thank you for making this awesome location possible for us”

“Kick-Flip, thank you for writing the book on leadership. Your laser focused drive to constantly ask more men to join F3 is impressive”

I could go on and will keep trying to do a better job of handing out compliments. 

I want to challenge us to keep that up. It makes a huge difference, so thank you guys for what you bring to the table / parking lot. 

Also, let’s take the compliments and spread them out beyond F3 to our families, friends and strangers. 

MOLESKIN:

Trolley’s job, my buddy Jordan, my nephew Ian

ANNOUNCEMENTS:

He is Risen Indeed

  • Welcome – slight chill @ 43 degrees – clear skys – Moon sliver in the sky.
  • Warmup:
    • 10 SSH, 10 Tempo Merkins, 10 Tempo Iron Mikes
    • Mosey to High School Entrance – 10 Monkey Humpers, 10 Pickle Pounders
    • Mosey to All Saints Entrance – 10 Smurf Jacks
    • Side Hops (both directions) , Kereokee towards CMU Pile, Bernie to CMU Pile
  • Workout:
    • Every Minute on the Minute workout for 40 minutes – then take a 20 second rest at end of each minute.
    • During that 20 seconds do a “Chipper Switch” where teams of two trade off doing CMU plaster chipping for the next minute (they were given hammer and chizels) – To become a Chipper or sweeper you had to do 10 Burpees to start.
    • The rest of the HIMs cary as fast as they can CMU’s out to a counting “Grid” of 10 rows by 10 columns.
    • We moved 216 blocks between the seven of us (roughly 30 CMU’s each) and changed a very messy CMU pile into nice and neat CMU pile.
    • The theme was – that we were rolling away the stone from the Tomb to see if Jesus was in the tomb – Alas – He was not there – so we cleaned up the tomb and left it nicer than when we found it.
    • At the 10 Minute Mark we added 1 Blockee to each CMU drop off.
  • Wrap Up
      • At 6:03 we started re-stacking all 216 blocks back into a neat pile.  We went over a little in time but were very grateful that Jesus was not in the tomb.
      • Galations 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
      • To me this is a great faith & gospel summary verse – Go out and live by faith today! Christ is in you!

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
[1Co 15:1-4 ESV] 1 Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, 2 and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you–unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.

Paul knew the Gospel. He knew how to articulate it, it was of first importance to him. How well do we? Can we articulate the gospel? A good litmus test: try to articulate the gospel with a friend or family member in 60 seconds. Is it hard/easy? If you have children, do you share it with them? Are they prepared to give an answer to this fallen world, if they are believers? We want to keep the first things first, so let us press in, before workouts, working hard at our jobs, and even with our families, to know the Gospel and be prepared to share it. Here are a couple of documentaries that I have found incredibly helpful in understanding the history of, attacks against, and a clear picture of the true, Gospel in America. I can’t recommend them enough.

MOLESKIN:
Pool Boy’s boss has Covid and needs Christ. Curveball’s daughter is interviewing for an internship today. Waxjob’s family is looking for a new caregiver. We were encouraged by Jenner sharing that, while the “church” numbers in America have gone down, much of the true evangelical population is still there, it’s mostly churches that have abandoned the Gospel that are shutting their doors.
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
None today!
