One Sunday morning an old biker entered
a church just before services were to begin.
Although the old man and his clothes were
spotlessly clean, he wore jeans, a denim shirt
and boots that were very worn and ragged.

In his hand he carried a worn out old
leather jacket and an equally worn out bible.

The church he entered was in a very upscale
and exclusive part of the city. It was
the largest and most beautiful church
the old biker had ever seen.
The people of the congregation were
all dressed with expensive clothes and accessories.

As the biker took a seat, the others moved
away from him. No one greeted, spoke to,
or welcomed him. They were all appalled at
his appearance and did not attempt to hide it.

The preacher gave a long sermon about
Hellfire and brimstone and a stern lecture
on how much money the church needed
to do God's work. As the old biker
was leaving the church, the preacher
approached him and asked the biker
to do him a favor. "Before you come back
in here again, have a talk with God and
ask him what He thinks would be
appropriate attire for worship.

" The old biker assured the preacher he would.
The next Sunday, he showed back up
for the services wearing the same ragged jeans,
shirt, boots, and leather jacket.

Once again he was completely shunned and ignored.
The preacher approached the man and said,
"I thought I asked you to speak to God
before you came back to our church."

"I did," replied the old biker. "

If you spoke to God, what did he tell you
the proper attire should be for worshiping in here?"
asked the preacher.

"Well, sir, God told me that He
didn't have a clue what I should wear.
He says He's never been here before." :(

I liked it. Passed it on to my pastor.

Actually, the church we attend, we visited for the first time while on the Wing coming back from an 1800 mile trip. They welcomed us with open arms. Blue jeans, boots and leathers didn't bother them a bit. Best of all, God WAS and still IS in that place. I'd met him many years before and we've been intimate friends every since. I like being where He is.
