The Chrome Horn - Racing With Jesus Ministries


by Rev. Don Rivers

   If we remember those holiday trips we have taken and even those long road trips to distant races this question echoes in our mind. Are we there yet? The question comes to mind with the additional refrain, Where? Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

  How is it that when I take a break from the traveling I do for the ministry I manage to drive over 300 miles to rest and relax? Are we there yet? No. Sometimes the journey becomes a coast-to-coast blur. I really don't mind all the traveling. I do however enjoy spending time in Maine collecting my thoughts and reflecting on the journey.

  I am glad to say we are closer than where we started. I have watched many of you move closer to God during this season. I have been blessed to be a part of your progress. We have all grown closer and have learned to lean on one another. Our journey together is only possible when we invite Christ to walk along with us.

  I received this as part of an ATS Thanksgiving message from Frank and Doreen Deiny, Virginia based good friends of the ministry and Late Model Stock Car driver. It gives us the opportunity to invite Christ into our lives. Nothing could express your thanks to God more than accepting His offer of salvation.

  Believing in God is one thing. But we must also take the next step...we must come to KNOW Him. We can make this holiday season a very special one by thanking the God of our forefathers for all He has done for us and for America.

  And when we give thanks, acknowledge these facts:

  1) God loves us. John 3:16, For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

  2) We are all sinful and separated from God. Isaiah 59:2, Your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. Romans 3:23, All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

  3) Jesus Christ is God's only solution to our sin problem. 1 Corinthians 15:3,4, Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, ...he was buried, [and] he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.

  4) Our choice is whether or not we will accept Jesus' sacrifice on our behalf. Acts 10:43, Everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.

  If we are ready to accept Jesus as our Savior, we can do so through a prayer like this:

  Dear God, I am so sorry that I have not been thankful enough for what You have done for America , and what You have done for me. I want to have the same devotion for You that our country's forefathers had. I want to accept Jesus' sacrifice for my sins right now.

   I trust in His death and resurrection as all I need to cleanse me of my sins and make me perfect in Your sight. Thank You for giving America her freedom, and thank You for giving me mine, in the form of eternal salvation. Help me to make Your love known to others. Amen.

  Are you there yet? You can start down that road by turning to God and asking him to forgive you. If you prayed this prayer, please share it with us. We would like the opportunity to pray for you on your new journey.

John 1:12-13; Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God-- children born not of natural descent,
nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God.

John 3:16-17; "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
