What's up this week with
Believers On Mountain Bikes (BOMB)

Weekly Update


5:30 start times!  In September we switch to 5:30 start times. 

Many got the message about the Fall 5:30pm start time and we had a strong group for Deer Creek last week, many got both loops in despite the waning days of summer. Deer Creek is so good and love how people shared about telling their story.  Tell your story! God love you. Not some future you, not some better you,not some 10 year from now but YOU, right now!

God knows it's scary to be us. In our doubts, in our fear, in our struggles, God know us. When we share this, we share the Gospel, which is powerful to save. We all have our own story, maybe it's a story about mountain biking... 

How do you view other trail users?  For example, do you dislike hikers because they impede your shredding of the gnar?  or what about those that leave dog poop bags on the side of the trail? 


Or what about new riders that don't seem to know what they are doing?  or what about new technology trail users (e-bikes, onewheels)?   I know people that leave dog poop bags on the side of the trail are the most frustrating to me (Doug).  I don't like the site of it.  But how should I view those people?
 
The last several weeks our discussions focused on excuses and insecurities we make from sharing the gospel, and our own testimony.  As I was reading 1 Corinthians this week, Chapter 3 stood out where Paul is writing to the people of Corinth and telling them they should not be followers of Paul or of Apollos, but of God.  He outlines the importance of being a beacon that God works through, and also how he views people.
 
"What, after all is Apollos?  And what is Paul?  Only servants, through whom you came to believe - as the Lord has assigned to each his task.  I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.  So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.  The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor.  For we are co-workers in God's service, you are God's field, God's building."  1 Corinthians 3:5-9
 
Are you one that plants or one that waters?  It is clear from Paul's letter that both planting and watering is important.  They are different jobs, but that doesn't mean mutually exclusive.  Sometimes we plant, and sometimes we nurture and water.  Groups like BOMB are meant to plant while we are on the trail, hanging out pre or post ride, or fellowshipping with one another.  However, we are also to water.  We see this time and time again as we hold each other up to focus on Christ, or we pray for each other, or we simply care for each other.  So both planting and watering is important.  If we just plant, nothing will grow - it needs watered.  If we just water, there is nothing to grow. 
 
Second, how should we think about other trail users?  Think of those on the trails as God's field or God's building, like Paul looked at people of the world.  "For we are co-workers in God's service, you are God's field, God's building." v.9  Paul emphasized that when we plant and water we must do so on only one foundation - the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.  v11. 
 
Action: Based on the discussion over the last several weeks, think about where you are planting and watering.  If you are not planting and watering, what are you allowing to get in your way?
