Most everyone here is part of a motorcycle club, or at least knows what motorcycle clubs are about. I have spoken many times about the the integrity and commitment that is required to be a member of a motorcycle club. It is not something that you enter into lightly. There is a cost, physical, emotional and monetary. In fact, the prospecting process for some clubs involves not only work, but also requires humbling yourself to the level of a servant to all of the existing members so they can be sure you are worthy of being called brother.
Fortunately, the benefits of full membership are substantial, building relationships with fellow members that can be relied on when life gets difficult. In fact there is nothing else quite like it in society.
But, there is another kind of relationship that shares some similarities to MC brotherhood, and you can probably guess what that is. Yes, I am talking about Christianity. Now don’t get you hackles up, I am not saying they are the same, just that they are similar in at least one way. The way I am thinking about is that you have to humble yourself before God and become like a servant to appreciate what God can and will do in your life.
But of course we are bikers, and we are proud and independent, we don’t lay down for anybody. Well, that is except for our brothers and sisters. We are here for them, and they are here for us.
Being a servant when there is a proper relationship isn’t demeaning or abusive, it demonstrates love.
In the Bible it says; “Jesus himself did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
The Creator of the universe became a man, lived as a servant even to the point of death because He wants a relationship with us.
Because I know Christ, I am here for him, and He is here for me. When I am weak, He is strong. I am available to serve Him and He provides the power to do what is needed. Without Him I can do nothing; with Him, I can do anything He asks of me.
Humbling myself before God may not seem like a big deal, but for me and for many of us, It is a big deal. I used to think I was in complete control of my life. I didn’t need God, I could handle everything on my own. It took quite a few years before I learned that wasn’t true, fortunately I met Jesus, the one who is in control.
in John 14:6 “Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Jesus laid down His life to provide a very simple but exclusive path. Knowing God requires knowing Jesus. I know Jesus, and I pray you do as well. If you want to talk to me I am available.
