Who needs Jesus?
Everyone needs Jesus. Whether you are rich or poor. Whether you have a model life or live on the streets. You might ride you bike only to the
dealership for another piece of chrome or live to ride it like you stole it, every chance you get. But, every once in a while everyone gets that
twinge: “is this all there is to life?” And the answer is: “No, we are all born with a hole that regardless of what we try to fill it with, can only be
filled with one thing…..Jesus Christ”.
No one is perfect.
We all have a past. You can t go back. We are all human and we all make mistakes. We see people out there who profess to be Christians, but
they are no better and perhaps even worse than we think we are. No one is perfect and we are all sinners. This should be a "no brainer" - but
just like the drunk who doesn't think he has a drinking problem, we so often fool ourselves into believing we're "not that bad". The Bible says
"all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). It also says "there is no one righteous, not one" (Romans 3:10). You know
Billy Graham, Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi and Mother Teresa? At some point in their lives they sinned, even if it was just one little white lie.
God exists. He's real! He cares about you! He loves you!
Having a relationship with God means He forgives us for the bad and stupid things we do. It means that His love for us is greater than anything
you could've done in your life. God still loves you and has already forgiven you for that, all of it. That doesn't mean you should shirk your
responsibilities and not make restitution for the wrong choices you've made. But at least God doesn't hold them against you.
Ok, so what do I do?
Repent of your sin - make a real commitment to turn 180 degrees around. You've got to want to leave your old, tired life behind. True
repentance means not looking back, but looking ahead instead. Peter said "repent and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus
Christ for the forgiveness of your sins" (Acts 2:38).
Receive Jesus as your Lord & Saviour - give control of your life to Him. The Bible says: "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord'
and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). Believing in Jesus isn't like believing in Santa
Claus, we all know Jesus is a real man who existed. Even the demons believe that! The issue is whether you're gonna continue trying to fly the
plane yourself through life, crashing into this, scraping that, flying through the storms in life alone instead of around them, running outta gas
and eventually doing the "crash & burn" thing OR whether you're gonna let God be your co-pilot to keep you flying straight & level. The scriptures
state that "every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord" (Phillipians 2:10,11). Everyone will end up finding out who He
is sooner or later. Don't wait till later! To receive Him, pray to Him right now! Let Him know in your own words that you are a sinner, that you
repent and that you want Him to be Lord of your life. He's waiting.
If you’d like to begin a personal relationship with Jesus today, please pray this prayer.
Lord Jesus, I invite You into my life. I believe You died for me and that Your blood pays for my sins and provides me with the gift of eternal life.
By faith I receive that gift, and I acknowledge You as my Lord and Savior. Amen.
Guess what brother, you’ve got a friend forever. No matter what goes on around you, Jesus will be there, even when you screw up. The right
choices in life are usually harder to make than the wrong ones. It's always easier to get into trouble than to stay out of trouble. For one thing, the
"world" will reject you. You'll be made fun of, called names by some of the friends who knew the "old" you and don't understand the "new" you.
You'll face opposition from those who want you to join in their misery because after all, misery loves company. Jesus said that those who
follow Him must take up their cross daily and follow Him (Luke 9:23).
Next, find yourself a church where you feel comfortable. You have to go to some "boring" church where people look at you weird. . Try several
out until you find one that fits you. Just like your bike may fit you but not "fit" someone else, you got to find one that's just right - don't get
discouraged. There's even some outreach churches and ministries sprouting up that are designed specifically for bikers.
Then find a ministry to serve. In many ways you’re old situation is not unique. There are thousands of bikers who, like you were lost. There’s
no better feeling than helping someone find their way in life.
