8 WheelsOfGrace.com Issue 35 In my life I have experienced many types of people, types of churches and types of motorcycles. I have no ced, while not always true, a correla on of a tude that spreads across all three of these. Think about your perfect bike, this may tell you more about yourself than you realize. If your idea of the perfect bike is a beau ful, well designed, piece of two wheeled perfec on just as it came from the factory as God intended, you may be one who prefers a church that is more tradi onal, where all is familiar and surprises are kept to a minimum. You trust in the wisdom of those you may have never met who have been chosen to build your bike or church. If it works why change anything right? I mean everything fits, no customiza on needed, right. I find that people in this category strive for that "perfect life" yet o en over react to "scratches" that occur in life whether it is something that happens to us or just a scratch on the tank. I will have to admit, I have been in this category, believing perfec on should be a ainable and judging those who do not meet my "OEM standards." The problem is that God can't do a lot with those that are trying to be gods themselves. He didn't seek the religious leaders, He sought the sinners. The most famous verse in the Bible, John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only bego en Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlas ng life" is part of a conversa on between Jesus and Nicodemus, who was a religious leader. Nicodemus was one of the few religious leaders that chose to really follow Jesus-Christ. Others followed tradi on. There is nothing wrong with a tradi onal church as long as they are truly loving the way Jesus loved. If this category is where you fit in, just lay down the perfec onism, and accept others where they are and love them as Jesus did, and while you are at it, you might change out those bars, or maybe a new Wind Therapy By: Dave "Road Sage" Dildine Choosing a church, should your bike lead the way?
