Object Lesson I wrote for Bugs4Christ, hope y'all don't mind me sharing it.

Take a look at this picture.


The middle car, the red one, belongs to one of the kids that comes out to Bugs4Christ. The others also belong to members, but the one in the middle is the one I want everyone to focus on. It's a nice red Bug, it runs, it drives, it functions like it should. It's like most of us, it could use a little work, a little maintenence, but it generally is a good running car that gets you from A to B. The majority of us are just like this red car when it comes to our Christian lives. We do what we're supposed to, we know what needs to be done, and we go to Church to help maintain that, just like the car. It's not perfect, none of us are perfect. It's got some wear and tear, all of us have baggage and wear and tear. None of us started perfect, and none of us will finish perfect, we are what we are and it's up to us to make sure we Thank God EVERY day for the blessings he's given us in our lives.



Take a look at the second picture. This is the same red car, but as you can see, it had an accident, it looks destroyed doesn't it? If you saw that car sitting somewhere, you'd think, "Well, that's beyond repair, you might as well scrap that, throw it away, it's no good to anyone!" I know that's what everyone thinks when they see it. Well, I have news for you, there are TONS of people that feel that way about themselves, they feel like, "I've done too much wrong, I'm not worth it, Why would God save me?" There are also people that look at someone and think, "Well, they aren't worth Saving, Why would God want them?" It's sad but true. Here's some more truth: We all struggle, we all stumble, we all make mistakes. I know there were points in my life where I stumbled and fell from my Walk with Christ. I went through years where I questioned, almost didn't believe, times when I thought to myself, "Am I really worth Saving???" The simple answer is yes, no one is beyond saving, no one is beyond repair.

Believe it or not, we didn't scrap that car, we didn't give up on it. We worked together to rebuild that car, we slowly took a piece at a time and repaired, replaced, improved and rebuilt that car. It's still a work in progress, but it's getting there, slowly but surely. If you look at the picture below, that's how the car stands now, as it sits just a few days ago. Hard to believe we turned that wreck into this Bug isn't it? You can clearly tell it's on the right path, it's being fixed as we speak. God can do the same for you, He can help turn you from that wreck into what you want to be, what you know you can be, all you have to do is accept it! God loves us all, he gives us His Grace when we don't deserve it. Remember, look at the picture of that wrecked car and KNOW in your heart, it's not too late, you're never too far gone! With the help of God, family, friends, Church, you can help yourself and you can turn it around!


Here's a link to our Facebook page and I encourage all of you to come by and visit. We meet weekly and it's always a lot of fun. We always have several cars to work on and we're always starting new projects. The teenagers/young adults really learn a lot while we're out there and some days the VW work seems almost secondary, but it's a great time. Please visit the Facebook page too and look through our pictures of weekly meetings, projects, mission trips, etc. And if any of you are interested in having us talk to your church, either on a Sunday or at a Men's Prayer Breakfast, a Youth Meeting, a Staff meeting, etc, please ask, we would LOVE to do it!!!!

For anyone that reads this, we're meeting on Thursday nights now and that may be easier for some of you, especially this week if you're out of work or on vacation. We'll be meeting this Thursday night at 7PM at our shop in Gray.
