Very blessed to have been able to help out today with getting our church ready to welcome the bikers who participated in the fifth annual Rumble For The Cure which benefits the American Cancer Society. This year's event started out with over two hundred bikes (not sure how many made it to the final stop in downtown Columbus), but unfortunately there were a few accidents involving bikers and at least two people had to be air lifted to the hospital. I don't know any details on the causes of the accidents or the condition of those who were injured, but please keep them in your thoughts and prayers!
Each year, First Mount Pleasant Baptist Church has been one of the stops along their route and we have opened up our restroom facilities, offered refreshments and obviously (and I believe most importantly) passed out tracts which share the true Gospel of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, and not some manmade religion of praying a prayer and asking Jesus into your heart, or good works, or repenting of all your sins (have yet to meet the person who has or can) or a thousand other things that most people say you have to do to be saved. Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Praying for the people who were hurt this year and also that each person who received a Gospel tract today, or in years past will read them and most importantly put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ. Finally, I hope we were a blessing to each of the men and women who made the stop at our church today and that we will continue to be a blessing to them each year for as long as it takes to find a cure. #rumbleforthecure #cancersucks #americancancersociety #motorcyclerally #motorcycle
