Started a couple minutes early with some Scripture about suffering and the joy that comes from suffering for the sake of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.

and when they had called in the apostles, they beat them and charged them not to speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the name.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭5:29, 40-41‬ ‭ESV‬‬

We must understand, as the Apostles did, that persecution, when for the Lord, is to be counted as an honor. Jesus died so that he could take our place and pay the penalty that we deserved to pay (death and hell) to give us a life we don’t deserve (abundant life on earth and eternal life in heaven).

Mumble chatter was high during the warm up. Riddler tried “poking the bear.” What he already knows is this bear doesn’t need any of that to make the workout painful.
