1 John: 16-21 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgement, because in this world we are like him. There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.
The Almanzo gravel bike ride came to Northfield yesterday. 1700 riders registered to bike one of the four routes. The first group took off Thursday night at midnight to begin their 380 mile ride. The three remaining groups left Saturday morning to bike either 162 miles, 100 miles or 50 miles of gravel roads.
The winner of the 380 ride came from Oklahoma. Northfield was full of bikes and riders from all over the midwest. My favorite bike was the one with a “JESUS LOVES ME” license plate. What a great way for this young man to share Jesus’ love with the bike world. How do you share God’s love with the world? Proudly declare Jesus’ love for you and those around you.
