Honk if you love Jesus

The wife of a Southern Baptist preacher talks to her Sunday school class about a wonderful religious experience that she had last week.

The other day I went up to the local Christian book store where I saw a "Honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had come from a thrilling choir performance at church, so I bought that bumper sticker and put it on the back bumper of my car. And I'm really glad that I did, too. What an uplifting experience followed.

I was stopped at the light of a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the lord, and I did not notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus or I may have never noticed the light had changed. But then I found that lots of people love Jesus.

Why, the guy behind me started to honk like crazy and then he leaned out his window and screamed, "For the love of GOD, go!....go! Jesus Christ go!".

Everyone was honking, so I leaned out my window and waved and smiled at all those 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 could hear him yelling something about a sunny beach. I saw another guy waving in a funny way with just his middle finger. I asked my teenage son what this meant, he said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well I have never even met a person from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign back. My son burst into laughter, 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 that is when I noticed the light had changed. I waved one more time to my brothers and sisters and drove through the intersection.

I was the only car that got across the intersection before the light changed again. I felt kind of bad that I had to leave them and all the love we had shared. I slowed down, leaned out the car and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one more time as I drove away.

Praise the LORD for such wonderful folks!
