Windy Loops and Blocks

Today was YHC’s first Q at Ambush. This is the closest AO to home, but because of work being just across I-20 from Graveyard, rarely visited by YHC. There are some tough customers out here. YHC will be back.

PAX partnered up in groups of 3

.25 mile loop around parking lot. 1’s begin at crosswalk on southern side of the loop, doing curls for the girls. 2’s start by running to 3’s. 3’s will start at the halfway point, on the northern side of the loop, doing tricep extensions with blocks AMRAP.

Relay style: 2 relieves 3, 3 relieves 1, 1 relieves 2, and so on until 500 curls are done. Roughly 100 feet before each team mate finishes their run, cones were placed to indicate a sprint to the finish.

When all teams are done, meet back at start for Mary:

Revelation 2:19-21

19 “I know all the things you do. I have seen your love, your faith, your service, and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things. 20 “But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols. 21 I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality.

The church in Thyatira was dutiful in their love, faith, service, and patient endurance. Yet Jesus did have a complaint against them. This “Jezebel” — reference to the Old Testament wife of Ahab — was  a self-proclaimed prophet, teaching sinful practices as doctrine. What would this have looked like? Probably a lot like today… are Christians today not asked to be tolerant of things they know are sinful? Are we not labeled as bigots or close-minded if we stand firm in Biblical teaching?

Don’t be like the church in Thyatira. Don’t allow worldly influences or false teachings to infiltrate your church. Use the Standard to guide your actions. It is all written in the Word.

Love others. Be kind to all, but don’t participate in things that convict you of sin.

This passage speaks to us right where we are, today. Let us not make the mistake of thinking that because this appears in Revelation, that it’s not relevant to us now.
