Ideal Life

BikeThis is the Christian bike story. How many of the boys and girls here have a bike? The Christian life is a little bit like a bike, you know! Lets see how. Do they give bikes away in the shops? Not normally! No, they need to be bought. So it is with the Christian. Saint Paul's letter in Romans 5.8 tells us, "But God has shown how much he loves us, it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!" We were bought by Jesus.✞

Cleaned and Oiled

Oil Can for BikeEveryone's bike needs cleaning every so often. The Christian bike also needs washing and again it is the Lord Jesus Christ who does it. Saint John tells us in 1 John 1.9 that, "If we confess our sins to God, he will keep his promise and do what is right, he will forgive us our sins and purify us from all wrongdoing." If you don't oil your bike, what happens? Yes, it squeaks and doesn't run properly, even seizes up. The oil for the Christian bike is prayer. It keeps your friendship with God running smoothly. Talk to him regularly and often and Jesus will keep you rolling along.
