“Mission 66…If My People,” is a call to believers and followers of Jesus Christ to return to Biblical values. In our culture, Biblical values are sometimes looked upon as “out of style” or “old fashioned.” Over the last few decades, decisions such as the removal of prayer from school, the legalization of abortion and the redefining of marriage have caused our foundation to severely crack. Our country has been deceived into thinking that these issues don’t correlate with God’s presence and blessing over our land. These are some of the issues (and by no means the only ones) that have caused America to slide down a very slippery slope. And if the slide does not stop now, who knows what is to come next? If we want to see our country healed, we the church must seek the Lord according to 2 Chronicles 7:14.
“If My People…” – God is calling out to His people.
“Who are called by My name” – As Christians, we are called to follow Jesus Christ.
“Will humble themselves” – To be humble in a very proud country goes against the grain.
“And pray and seek My face” – Too many want to seek God’s hand, when He calls us to seek His face.
“And turn from their wicked ways” – We must put an end to wickedness and turn towards His righteousness.
“Then…” – Then, and only then, will He fulfill the rest of this verse.
“Will I hear from heaven” – If we want Him to hear us when we pray, we must humbly seek His face and turn from our wicked ways. Until then, we can pray all we want, but He will not hear.
“And will forgive their sin” – Sin is wiped away, forgiven, when His people truly repent and seek Him.
“And heal their land” – What a gift, the healing of our land!
May we continue to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face and turn from our wicked ways so that we will see the Lord forgive our sin and heal our country.
Would you like to join us in some way as we take this message across our land? We would love to hear from you.
It is difficult to project all the expenses for a unique missions trip like Mission 66. To begin, each rider is responsible for obtaining the proper bike and equipment and also travel to and from the starting and ending points. During the trip, expenses will be $70/day which will cover your lodging, meals, and support team expenses. The entire trip would be $70/day x 28 riding days = $1,960. You will also need a biking jersey or two (available here, contact us for coupon code), discounted for riders at $35. There is only a limited number available, so order soon.
The entire trip on Route 66 from Chicago, IL to Santa Monica, CA will be a total of 2,487 miles. Some may choose to join the team to bike the entire journey, others can choose a segment or two:
