Car Stickers

Stuck in traffic, we were behind a van with this sticker:  
A blaring ambulance had to get through so all the vehicles retreated to the sides to give it space. The van with the sticker immediately tailed the speeding ambulance and freed itself conveniently from the traffic snarl. 

What would Jesus do? The  van demonstrated what He would NOT do. More than the sticker on our car, our behavior shows who we really are.   

Believers in Jesus must show by their acts the grace of the Lord, especially if their car stickers bear His name.

In Acts 4:20, Peter and John told the powers that be who prohibited them from preaching about Jesus, “. . . Do you think God wants us to obey you rather than him? We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard.”

These two people, not very highly educated, boldly proclaimed the goodness of Jesus to the amazement of everyone. They had no cars, much less stickers; their words and actions said it all.
