I believe that God gives you the desires of your heart for a reason! You love to do the things you love to do because God has a purpose for you to be in the place you're in, which a lot of people don't believe. In my case for instance, ever since I was five years old I wanted to ride motorcycles for a living and I have been looked down on by a lot of believers because almost all motocross and freestyle events are held on Sundays. Preventing me from going to church. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that it doesn't matter if I'm in church or not because everyone should be as often as possible. I'm just saying that if the desires of your heart are a sport or something that pulls you away from something that is looked at as the only way to know Christ and be a Christian, like church! Don't loose sight of what IS the most important thing to the body of believers! Discipleship! Spreading the word of God to an area of people who have nothing to believe in! The Bible tells us to "go ye into all the world and preach the gospel." If you find yourself wondering if you should go after the desires of your heart or go through life pretending you don't feel as strongly about that area of your life as you really do, because you feal people will look down on you, take a minute to realize that God gave you those desires! There is a reason you love to do what you love to do! Now all you have to do is pray and ask God to show you how he wants to use you in that area of your life! For me, ever since I started racing motocross I noticed that there is no such thing as christian motocross gear of anysorts, that I've found anyway, and even less of a christian example being set at any of the events. I have always felt that that's why God gave me that desire. To try to set a Godly example and spread the word of God to an area of people who never set foot in church, or have any kind of a christian example to follow, because every Sunday they're out doing what they love to do and they don't realize that you don't have to be a straight laced, hymnal singing, no smiling, spend all your spare time in church person (that being a Christian is percieved as being) to have a personal relationship with God! They can have a personal relationship with God no matter where their at or what they're doing. The Lord himself tells us that "where two or three are gathered there I shal be." Yes, he is talking about the church and the body of believers. God needs those people there praying for the unsaved, but I believe he is also saying that if I make my faith known to those around me, set an example, and offer a 15 minute devotion to a group of dirt covered guys and girls in the middle of a pasture on a Sunday morning before a motocross race that he will be there too! That's what EXTREME CHRISTIANS is all about! Showing the world that being a Christian isn't boring! That you can still do the things you love to do, and that you don't have to smoke, drink, cuss, and holler to enjoy life! I want to try and bring a Godly influence into every aspect of life! Whether it be motocross or whatever. I know there are others out there that feel the same way I do, but just don't know what to do because they don't feel like they should be doing what they love to be doing (because of the way other believers have made them feel) and at the same time scared of what others will think if they find out that they're a Christian! I know because I felt that way, and I'm tired of it! I think it's time we quit talking about the Christians that aren't in church every Sunday and start praying for the Lord to give them the strength to be a shining light for him in the dark areas of life! It may not be the deprived areas of the world or an area of the world where Christianity is illegal, but it is still a mission field that we're not paying any attention to, and I believe that's why God gave me a desire to ride motocycles! Don't ignore the desire's of your heart, just dig deeper and pray to find the reason God gave you those desire's! God Bless!
