If you had the opportunity to put up a billboard to advertise anything– what would it be?
As I sat in the drive thru line at a McDonalds recently, a parked minivan grabbed my attention. It was white, had a ladder on top of it, and I knew it had to be a work vehicle. But there was something different about it- on both sides of the van there was a picture of the cross with the words ‘One Way” and then beside the picture it said- “Christ” The WAY to heaven- John 14:6. The license plate was also a reference to the same scripture.
It struck me how profound this was.
In a day where people want to advertise EVERYTHING-
their political affiliations,
here was someone using their “billboard” to point people to Jesus!
Over the front tires on either side in very small print was the name of their business and a phone number. I just happened to see that the business was called “Schock Electric”.
What an encouragement to see this today- and a great reminder to think about this – what are you advertising?
Jesus IS the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE.
