the Bible and Motorcyclists
Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full.
- Luke 14:23 NIV 1984
It’s almost as if God made a Great Commission especially for Bikers.
You have been carefully made. God has crafted you to have very specific interests. As a Christian, He’s bestowed upon you very specific Spiritual Gifts. This divine combination of interests and Spiritual Gifts makes you uniquely qualified to work God’s plan for your life. Riding motorcycles is part of that plan. Remember this verses as you ride. As the saying goes – “You may be the only Jesus some people will see.”
The Parable of the Great Banquet
When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.”
Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’
“But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’ “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’ “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’
“The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’
“‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’
“Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full. I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’”
- Luke 14:15-24
