Why would I make such a statement, and what on earth does this have to do with our faith?
It’s simple, if Jesus was on this earth today, he would have to get around, so he would have to drive something. So it would be a mustang…
Why not an old used car, or a escort or even a big SUV? If Jesus was here today, he might even need a tour bus. He would have to have “people” with him. The spin doctors, the press and his 12 followers, there families and his family.
But I still think it would be a mustang, everyone else could ride the bus, but Jesus would be in a Red, convertable GT500 Shelby Mustang…
I can see it now, He is driving down route 66, top down, sun glasses on, and his hair flowing in the air, music blasting The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s, the sound of the road and wind mixing in with Being for the benifit of Mr. Kite making Jesus smile at the power of the American roads…
What a better time then when you are driving by yourself to let your mind turn to Christ, to God. And there is something special about doing so on a sunny summer day with good music and open space…
So If Jesus was here today, he would drive a mustang… If only because it’s a cool car, and I love them… If you love a vet, then when you write your Blog, Jesus can be driving a Vet…
The moral of this story is, Jesus is here today, in you and me, so when I am driving my car, it is the same as Jesus driving… Now I don’t have a mustang, i use too, but now I drive a Jeep Commander, so at this point Jesus is driving a Jeep, but he really wants that Mustang! But I do know one thing, Jesus would follow the 10 commandments of the road:
The “Ten Commandments” for drivers, as listed in the document, are:
I. You shall not kill.
II. The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm.
III. Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you deal with unforeseen events.
IV. Be charitable and help your neighbor in need, especially victims of accidents.
V. Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination and an occasion of sin.
VI. Charitably convince the young and not so young not to drive when they are not in a fitting condition to do so.
VII. Support the families of accident victims.
VIII. Bring guilty motorists and their victims together, at the appropriate time, so that they can undergo the liberating experience of forgiveness.
IX. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party.
X. Feel responsible toward others.
So, do we have to confess the breaking of one of the 10 commandments of the road? I’ll save that for a different Blog….
