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

Weekly Update


Reminder that September is when we switch to 5:30 start times.  As you can see in the picture above from last week, the sun was already going down as we climbed Chimney Gulch.  Great ride and fellowship, but did finish in the dark.  

This week is Deer Creek at 5:30 from the main lot off of Grizzly Drive.  They just had a fire there which we'll see from the start, but the main trail is open as is the seasonal Black Bear trail off of the Plymouth Loop. 

Devotional
Are there any products that you are brand loyal to that you rave about?  You tell others about the product?  Maybe it is Push’s ASC3 coil conversion, or your favorite pedals or shoes?  What are some examples of products you are loyal to and tell others about those products? 

Two weeks ago we discussed excuses.  Last we discussed moving on from those excuses to action.  This week, let’s discuss one action we can all take – sharing our own testimony.

Acts 4:19-20 
19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges!
20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

Earlier in chapter 4, Peter and John were called before the Sanhedrin.  They were eventually asked to stopping speaking about Jesus and proclaiming his resurrection.  In Acts 4:19-20 they answer, "What is right in God's eyes: to listen to you, or to him?  You be the judges!  As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard." 

Then look at Acts 5.  As the apostles continued to spread the news they were eventually flogged and were ordered not to speak in the name of Jesus.  But, "the apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name.  Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the goods that Jesus is the Messiah."  Acts 5:41-42. 

Finally, consider Saul's conversion (to Paul).  He was not a witness to the resurrection of Jesus.  However, Jesus spoke to him on the way to Demascus.  As a result, Paul became a witness - sharing his testimony and the gospel of Jesus Christ.  (Acts 9:1-31).  Other Bible references to consider:  Psalm 71:15-18, Matthew 10:32.
 
The point of all of this is, what is your testimony?  If someone asked you, "why do you believe in Jesus Christ" can you share your personal testimony and the gospel of Jesus with them like you would share or write a review about your favorite mountain biking product?  Our testimony of why we believe in Jesus Christ is personal to us.  It can’t be argued with because it is our personal encounter.  It is our faith.  Of course, many will challenge our faith and Christianity, but they really can’t challenge our personal testimony.  They may persecute us like they did the apostles, or ask us to leave.  However, be encouraged by the apostles, and the Biblical references above.  Jesus has our back when we proclaim his name. 

Action: Have you taken the time to write out why you believe?  It is an exercise that is helpful so when you move to action and get the question, you have an answer that is personal to you.  If you join us in Moab, you might just here a few testimonials.
