Feb. 10: Jesus and the Bikers

Finding groups of Christians who are committed to spreading the Gospel may not seem odd.  What is perhaps unusual is the focus of one ministry—bikers.

The Freedom Biker Church has branches in the Carolinas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Colorado, and even British Columbia, Canada.  Its mission—reach out to bikers who would probably not be too comfortable walking into a mainstream church.

“Everybody in the world is looking for acceptance, security, significance and a real genuine love from somebody,” explains church founder Mike Beasley.  “And what Freedom Church really is, is just taking the essence of the church in our relationship with Jesus Christ and saying there are no pretenses here, no walls.  You come as you are.”

God’s love is unconditional.  He invites us into relationship with Him just the way we are.  It is through that transforming relationship, however, that we can grow to become better than we’ve ever been.

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and spread the good news to the whole creation.”  (Mark 16:15)

Lord, may I accept my neighbor as a reflection of You.
