Yep, if I drove past this sign, I’d be worshiping at this church the next Sunday (sarcasm).
You’ve seen them many times. You’re sitting in your car. You’re driving down the road, and you see a sign next to a church. Usually it’s a clever line that makes you laugh or think. “Need a lifeguard? Ours walks on water”. “Son screen prevents sin burn.” You get the gist. But what purpose did this sign serve?
Yes, there were 19 hijackers on the planes on 9/11. The number of Americans dead were actually 2,996. But the sign is saying something that’s basically true. Still, why? What does that have to do with Jesus? If this church wanted attention, it definitely accomplished that today. In the process though, it probably made some people push the pedal and drive as fast as they could past that church.
Do you think this is an appropriate church sign? Perhaps it’s possible a more Jesus focused sign might have drawn a Muslim immigrant to go in and become saved that day. To paraphrase a popular phrase, what would Jesus think of this sign?
Peace to all those who are in Christ.
