Honk If You Love Jesus!

While stopped for a red light a man noticed that the car ahead of him had a bumper sticker that read, “Honk if you love Jesus!” He loved Jesus, so he honked his horn.

Angrily, the driver in front shouted, “What’s wrong with you, fool? Can’t you see that the light is red?”

There are many of us who say one thing with our banners and another with our behaviors; one thing with our lips but another with our lives.

John lays it down clearly when he says Christians are to live their lives as Jesus lived His. The only way we Christians can show our love for God is to live in obedience to Him. The only way we can show the world that we are living in Christ is to imitate His life.

God has given us the greatest gift imaginable: eternal life with Him through Jesus Christ. But this great gift brings great obligation. It’s not where we live, but how we live. It’s not only what we believe, but how we behave. The Christian life is living life with Christ, in Christ and through Christ.

Prayer: Father, living the Christian life is serious business. If we profess one thing and practice another, we deceive not only the world but ourselves. Give us the conviction and courage to live as Your children: in Christ’s name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: 1 John 2:1-6
