A basket case and God’s children

Posted: March 14, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ever hear bikers talking about bikes and mention a basket case?  Wonder what one is ? Allow me to give you the low down on the biker chatter. A basket case is basically a motorcycle with most of the parts but may not run due to some main parts that are missing or put in the motor wrong or any number of other issues. Well we as the creation of God could be considered God’s basket case. I got this after readin’ a book written by Sonny Barger a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club. The story was called Nan’s basket case where she bought a pan head which was missing parts or had parts put in backwards and it took time and money to get the bike in runnong condition. Sometimes biker perfer these because they can modify them into an extension of their personality and  be as one with the bike knowing the in’s and out’s ,nuts and bolts, why it won’t run and everything else in between. Well I think we can say man kind is the same with God, he knows what makes us tick and as we go along in life he is constantly modifying us into his own image as he did when he created Adam in Genesis . We are if you will God’s basket case we have our corks and what not but as we strive to be like him we are being sculpted to perfection as the basket case motorcycle is being done by the owner the only difference is with a motorcycle you can almost pin point the time it may take to finish it but with God the time we reach perfection is when we get to heaven and are given our glorified body which will have no imperfection nor blemish we will have reached perfection through the grace of God and not by our own work because it takes his grace and his help to get us to change into his image. This is my take on the children of God. Until next time as always keep the rubber side down and may God richly bless you.
