In the week leading up to Thursday’s Espresso, Abraham had unleashed a twitter rant about posting and being all in that had many local Paxs nervous about what he would roll out at his next Q. Little did they know that he and I swapped Thursdays. So when they rolled out of their fartsacks that morning they naturally had a little trepidation. Thus the name curveball once they figured out the true Q. When I arrived, and before the workout some was already some mumble regarding some routines I had them do the last time I Q’d Espresso. You see I like to try new stuff. So here is how I drew this one up;

2 Peter 3:10-11
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
11 Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives
I grew up thinking this was simply a verse about getting our lives in order and be ready for the day of the Lord should it arrive at any time. But the Holy Spirit gave me a new perspective on my way to the workout. My example was of the cookie cutter Hollywood war movie when one of the characters receives a mortal wounded and can’t go further but then offers to stay behind with a gun and an extra clip. His intentions are to protect the group as they escape and take out as many of the enemy as he can while doing so. Are we not to be like that wounded hero and take out as many as we can? Only we are to take as many out of this sinful world by sharing the Word an our witness and planting that seed in hopes they will accept Christ as their savior.
There were several prayer requests:
