For some reason, my mind went to last Friday, when we had our car at the dealer for some service. While we waited, we asked some questions of a very friendly and genuine salesman. (before I go further, I want to let you know that Rachel and I both really appreciated the way this salesman treated us – with respect!)
He invited us to take a test drive. He went on to explain that this dealership allowed prospective buyers to take a test drive home overnight to get a more realistic experience of the car.
We tried the car, but didn’t take it for an overnight.
So, back to the bumper sticker: Do you suppose one could “try” Jesus for a couple times around the block, or, perhaps, even for an overnight?
The longer I live and follow Jesus, the less inclined I am to say yes. I don’t think Jesus is looking for test-drivers. I think Jesus is looking for people who are willing to give their entire lives over into God’s hands.
