There once was a Biker that owned a very large H.D. dealership. He had two sons that ran things for him.
One day the younger son said to his dad that he was tired of working six days a week and wanted to sell his share of the business. After a few days he got on his 1970 FLH, saddle bags packed, and with the bucks from his share of the business he started across country. As he traveled, he spent his money like it would never run out. He made a lot of friends along the way, drugs, booze and wild women was how he partied from day to day. When his money finally ran out, so did his friends. He sold his bike to buy more drugs and booze to feed his new habit, but that didn’t last as long as he would have liked.
In a short time he found himself living on the streets, hustling change and eating from dumpsters.
About this time the recession got real bad and there were no jobs to be found anywhere and no one would hire him anyway. At last he came to his senses and said, “all my father’s employees have more than they can eat and here I am about to starve! He started hitchhiking back towards what was once called home, but because of his heavy guilt he figured he was not fit to be called his father’s son and he knew he could never be a partner in the Bike Shop again. He thought when he sees his father he would say to him, “Father, I have sinned against God and against you. I am no longer fit to be called your son; treat me as one of your employees.
As he was getting closer to the Bike Shop, his father saw him walking still a long way off and his heart was filled with pity. He ran to meet him and grabbed him tight with a hug. “Father,’ the son said, “I have sinned against God and against you. I am no longer fit to be called your son. But the father called out to one of his workers and said, “get my son some clean clothes and go to the butcher and get the best steaks he has, so we can celebrate the return of my son. This son of mine was dead, but now he is alive; he was lost, but now has been found ! And so the party began. In the mean time, the older son was out getting a shipment of Harleys, and as he was coming near the shop, he heard loud music and people partying, so he asked one of the mechanics “what’s going on? “your brother has come back,’ he said “and your father is throwing a party with steaks and everything because he got him back safe and sound. The older brother was so angry that he would not go into the shop, so his father came out and begged him to come in. Copping an attitude, the son said, “Look, all these years I have worked for you like a slave, and I have never disobeyed your orders. What have you given me? Not even hamburgers to party with my friends! But this son of yours wasted all he was given on booze, drugs and whores, but, when becomes back, you throw him a party with steaks and everything! The father said to his son, “listen, you are always here with me, and everything I have is yours. But, we had to celebrate and be happy, because your brother was dead, but now he is alive; he was lost, but now he has been found.
Listen brother, you may feel “what does this all have to do with me anyway?
A lot! you see we have all screwed up (sinned) against God the Father and have fallen short of his plans for us. It started back in the beginning with Adam and Eve. They screwed up (the first sin) when they did what the devil wanted and disobeyed what the Father wanted them to do. To this very day we are still doing our own thing.
In this story, we are like the younger son, who went out to do his own thing, his own way and soon found out that life is not one big party, like him we can’t blame anyone but ourselves, the father didn’t stop his son because like him we all have a free will to do whatever we want. Just like the son in this story, we need a way out of our mess. The only way out is to go back to the Father through His son Jesus Christ. Only through His son Jesus, can we be put right with the Father and have all our sins (screw ups) forgiven.
FIRST: We must admit we are sinners (screwed up)
SECOND: That we are sorry for all we have done wrong.
THIRD: Ask Jesus to come into my life and be not only Savior but Lord of it.
FOURTH: Stop doing whatever is screwing up your life as Jesus gives you the strength to do so
FIFTH: Start reading God’s word (the Bible) and hanging around other brothers who have been REDEEMED by the Blood of JESUS!
Just pray this prayer and really mean it and you will be Redeemed. "Lord Jesus, I believed You died for my sins and rose from the dead. Please forgive me and saved me from my sins. Cleanse in your Blood and come into my heart. Thank You Lord , Amen
If you have prayed this prayer please e-mail, write or call so we can stay in contact with each other and ride for the “Son” and ride forever free.
The LORD JESUS CHRIST says to the members of REDEEMED M.M., “Tell the Bikers to come to Me "So we are doing what the LORD says. To all Bikers everywhere, in the Name of JESUS, you are personally invited to turn off the highways of darkness and turn onto the road of light. To come into a personal relationship with the LORD JESUS CHRIST, the only One that can saved you from “the wages of sin which leads to death”
