Honk if you love JESUS

Honk If You Love Jesus

The other day I saw a ”Honk if you love Jesus” bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly
sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance followed by a
thunderous prayer meeting,so I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, am I glad I
did! What an uplifting experience that followed! I was stopped at a red light at a busy
intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord, and how good He is… and I didn’t notice that
the light had changed.It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn’t
honked, I’d never have noticed! I found that LOTS of people love Jesus! Why, while I was
sitting there, the guy behind me started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his
window and screamed, ”For the love of GOD! GO, GO!! Jesus Christ, GO!!” What an
exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out of my
window and started waving and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my horn a
few times to share in the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there
because I heard him yelling something about a ”sunny beach”…I saw another guy waving in
a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. When I asked my teenage son
what that meant, he said that it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well,
I’ve never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck
sign back. My son burst out laughing…why even HE was enjoying this religious experience!
A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their
cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I
attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed, so I waved one more time to my
loving brothers and sisters, grinning, and drove on through the intersection.I noticed I was
the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and I felt kind of
sad that I had to leave them all after all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down,
leaned out of the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one more time as I
drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks.
