Well, the ROT Rally is over, and it was a good rally, there were no motorcycle related deaths reported during the rally.

But, If you have turned on the news over the last several days, then you will know about the latest terrorist attack in Florida.

It is certainly a tragedy that over 50 people were killed by the Orlando gunman, and while I don’t understand the Gay lifestyle, it truly saddens me that someone would want to kill people because of their sexual preference.

We are all God’s children, and He wants nothing more than to have a relationship with each of us.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

You see, the One True God cared enough for us to send his only Son to die, so that we could have a relationship with Him. He isn’t some scrooge who wants to take away all of our fun. Jesus died so we would have a choice, so that we could actually get to know Him.

Unfortunately the 50 people that died no longer have a choice. Some of them no doubt had a relationship with Jesus Christ and are now in a better place, but those that didn’t, no longer have a choice. And, that is a deep tragedy.

You see, having a relationship with God is not about our sexual preferences, or about our sin, or about how many beers I had last night. It is just about my simply wanting to know the amazing God that created and sustains everything you see around you, the one with “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. I have that hope, and I hope that you do as well.
