CrossFit High Gear – CrossFit Kids & Teens
With Advent and Christmas, we celebrate how Jesus was born. But what was He born for? Ultimately, to take on our sins and die, so that we wouldn’t have to suffer. He did nothing wrong but was punished for what we did. With His resurrection, He had victory over sin and Satan.
Explain that people in Bible times often had reserved tombs where they could be buried. Someone (with a lot of money) had a family grave, and wanted to offer his tomb for the body of Jesus. He had special linens wrapped around the body and put a huge rock over the tomb. This man wanted to make sure no one tried to take or damage the body. He cared about Jesus and what would happen to Him. It was a Friday when Jesus was killed, and the next day was the Jewish Sabbath. This meant everyone had to rest and could not work. There were some women, though, who loved Jesus very much. They wanted to anoint His body with special oils. They went on Sunday (the third day) to do so.
The three women who first encountered the empty tomb were so excited that they ran to tell the others, who didn’t even believe the story. It is significant that Peter, who had denied his Lord a few days before, was the first to inspect the tomb and marvel at what had happened.
When they saw the tomb and heard the angels, Mary, Joanna and Mary finally put the pieces together, and to an extent realized what was going on. Everything prior to this event was preparation. Everything after (the rest of the New Testament) happened in order to tell the world about Jesus. He is the central point of it all. If this is true of God’s word, it should be true in our lives. Our faith rests on the resurrection. Easter is about much more than candy and egg hunting. We don’t need to look for Jesus; He has risen! He’s just as alive in our midst and in our hearts today as He was on that first Easter morning. Let us rejoice! Let’s practice sharing that good news with others.
Hospital Tag: The basic rules are the same as tag. One person is “Mr. Yuck” and the others run. When you get tagged you may cover your “wound” with one of your hands. When you get tagged a second time, you may cover your “wound with your other hand. The third time you get tagged, you must go to the “hospital” and perform __reps of __movement until you are well enough to be discharged from the hospital.
Planks! If skilled group, practice perfect “negative” push-ups. (Beginning in a plank, athletes s-l-o-w-l-y lower body to ground, keeping core tight and elbows tucked back. Can do they a 3 second negative push-up? 5 seconds? Longest?)
