newsletter Hello all,

Well, it's hard to believe it's been three months since my last newsletter, but it's true. Time flies, when you're having fun, right?!  I was working in my garage this morning and I came across something that I thought I should share. I prayed about and felt that I should go with it, so here we go.

Do you know Who we serve? I mean, yeah, we know it's God but do we really know Him? Getting to know another person takes time and effort. It is the same with God. He comes to us in a variety of ways and not everyone interacts with the Almighty in the same way. What I discovered in my garage was a listing of the names of God and it's not even an exhaustive list. I can sometimes meditate on these to learn and understand (or at least try to) more about God. My last favorite "the Ancient of Days" from Daniel 7:9. It really causes me to ponder, what does that mean, the Ancient of Days? It just scratches the surface of who He is. Below are some more names for you all to ponder, meditate, and consider. Doing this increases my faith and gives me peace and confidence as I try to step out to what God calls me, knowing that the "Lord of All" Acts 10:36 is directing me. Here is the list:
Advocate I John 2:1 Almighty Revelation 1:8 Alpha and Omega Revelation 1:8 Amen Revelation 3:14 The Author and Finisher of our Faith Hebrews 12:2 The Bread of Life John 6:35 The Corner-stone Psalm 118:22 Counselor Isaiah 9:6 Deliverer Romans 11:26 Everlasting Father Isaiah 9:6 The First and the Last Revelation 1:17 Good Shepherd John 10:11 Great High Priest Hebrews 4:14 Holy One Acts 3:14 I AM John 8:58 Immanuel Isaiah 7:14 Jehovah Isaiah 26:4 King of Kings Lord of Lords I Timothy 6:15 Light of the World John 8:12

Well that's half the list and enough to consider as we come up on Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday. May God bless you all. Continue the work God has called you!

January 2017 CSBA Newsletter http://www.christiansportbike.com/news/item/185-2017-january http://www.christiansportbike.com/news/item/185-2017-january

newsletter Hello all,

I hope this letter find you all starting the New Year with a fresh vigor for accomplishing new goals. I wanted to start off this year with a prayer request. God has been so good to us this past year and many things we hoped to accomplished got done, but some things did not. I think the biggest thing we need is also my prayer request from you for the year. When you approach the Almighty in prayer, would you please pray that He would send "workers" into our ministry. Here is the passage of which I reference: 35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:35-38

Please let me clarify what I mean by a "worker". I wasn't talking about a back slapping glad-hander. Those are the kind of people that when you ask for help at a project at your home they show up, enjoy a donut and coffee that you bought for the workers, gives you free advice on your project, and then pats you on the back, shakes your hand and leaves. I also am not talking about "good time Charlies", that's an old school term for the person that "can't make it" for your house work project, but has time to show up for a house warming party any day, any time. I was talking about a worker. Someone who shows up and asks, "what do you need me to do?" They do as you ask and work as long as they can, but they work because they believe in what you are doing and want to help.

The Christian Sport Bike Association currently is blessed with some great workers, but we need some more. There are still many motorcycle riders out there that need to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. We have chapters that could use more members who are willing to work, committed to the calling that God has for their life. We also need chapters were there are none, so some of our workers need to be leaders. These leaders need to step up, be an example, and lead. Once again, good time Charlies and back slapping glad handers need not apply. You need to know how to ride, how to understand the Scriptures, and how to lead. A person to be a chapter leader needs to be a special person committed to do the work. As you can tell, they need to be sent from the Lord. So, please, pray that the Lord sends us workers to work on the harvest, as well as some leaders. Thanks for your prayers and support,

Mark Hamm
CSBA President
