For the love of Jesus

I got a letter from Aunt Martha the other day.
She writes . . .
The other day I went to the Christian Bookstore and 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 car.
Boy! I’m glad I did! What an uplifting experience followed! I was stopped at a red light on 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’s a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn’t honked, I’d never have noticed! I found that lots and lots of people love Jesus! Why, while I was sitting there, the guy behind me started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out 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 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. I asked Junior, who was in the back seat, 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 running toward me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed that the light had changed to green. So, I waved to all my new friends, grinning, and drove through the intersection. I noticed that I was the only car that had gotten through before the light changed back to red, and I felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we’d shared, so I slowed down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away.
Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!
