Drawing all to Him...

"But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." - John 12:32

Beautiful words spoken by our Lord. Jesus knew that His time was coming and that nothing was more important than His gift of eternal life.  In these words, He lets his audience, including us, know that through His death and resurrection He is able to draw ALL nations, ethnicities, races, genders, and people of any status unto Him.  It is the bond that draws everyone together.

Yesterday, our church experienced something a little unusual.  We had the blessing of having representatives of the Christian Motorcycle Association give the message.  The above verse is the one their specific chapter (Yeshua Riders) has chosen as a focal verse.  Out of so many verses in the Bible, why this one?  Look at what it is matter the race, gender, or status, Jesus is the common bond.  We experienced that verse yesterday.  We had the privilege of hearing how some of them had traveled half way across the world with the intention of sharing Christ through the Jesus film, but had the opportunity to also serve medical needs, worship needs, and deliver 22 motorcycles to pastors so that their jobs could be done a little more easily.  All because of Christ...Christ is the common bond.

Missionaries come in all shapes and sizes.  They reach people across the world, across the nation, and across the street.  The fact of the matter is that the people that visited our church yesterday were able to do what they did because they made themselves available through their interest in motorcycles and Christ.  In order to reach across the street, we simply have to make ourselves available through our interest in ______________ and Christ.  You may be the only one that has the ability to reach out.  You may be the only one that has that common interest with someone.  Use that common interest to share Christ, drawing ALL men to Him!

In Christ, 

Bro. Grant
