Team Impact: Judgement

Team Impact is, at first glance, one crazy organization. However, we at Endu love their mission and what they're about. They are all big dudes, who lift a lot of weight [some powerlifters or strongmen], and use this sampsonian physique to spread the gospel. They fold frying pans, bend metal, and snap bats to grab your attention. Before you know it the bible has become the focus of the entire event. My favorite message was brought by a record holding powerlifter, who was dead serious about every word he uttered.
He is twisting a bar by holding it in his mouth

He told us about judgement day

When playing competitive sports we are surrounded by judges. It can be a ref, a coach, or even fans. In powerlifting there are three judges, all watching the lift from various angles. The movements are simple, so the judge is looking for the tiniest of details. All of your efforts can be pointless if the judge finds mistake in you. This causes a lot of attention to be focused on technique and doing it right. The greatest Judge of all has set an example we must follow. He has told us what is right, and what is wrong. All of our effort should go into following God's pattern. 

In powerlifting getting a majority of white lights signals good lift; getting majority red signals no lift. When judgement day has come and God is starring at you judging will you get a white light? Will Jesus Christ be able to affirm that you indeed are his? Can God say, "'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'"

Everyone will be judged, aim for a good lift: For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
