A Brief Theology of Intensity

Guest User


I love intensity. I enjoy spicy food and black coffee. I would rather experience the intensity of a Crossfit workout than go on the elliptical machine. And when it comes to music, I enjoy a wide range of artists, many of whom are bands that you probably wouldn’t like. (Check out one of my all time favorite songs by a band called Norma Jean. Warning: it’s intense.) 

Now, don’t get…

You’re most welcome. Many blessings.


My time in football taught me a little about intensity but it was really once I was assigned to the Strategic Air Command that I learned to live and breathe it. The thing is that unless you approach any task with intensity you will have to live with the so-so results that come. Looking back it was extremely enjoyable dealing with the intensity that all aspects of training in SAC demanded.

Thank you for sharing your experience with intensity Jack. I was intense as a leader when it was called for (most of the time - lol), but I knew when to bring it down a notch as well... Have a great afternoon Jack. Thank you!


Good Thursday morning Colonel.
