Bumper Stickers and Jesus Fish

Jesus Fish, the number one way for Christian motorist to tell everyone else on the road that I BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST. This fish symbolizes an everlasting devotion to a God who created me and died for me. It allows me to be able to tell others wherever I go that I am proud to be a Christian and follow the Jesus Gospel’s...... Then We Go Home......

We live a life of secret sin.......

We do things that I know are wrong, but pretend are okay because I’m still a Christian....

As Long As I have this Jesus Fish I have my Christianity and Everyone Knows It.....

There is something terribly wrong with a faith when we employ these outward expressions as a way to show of our Christianity when the rest of our lives are no better than the people we constantly condemn. The Muslims down the street that we judge are faithful to what they believe and our living it out every day. Is Christianity a passing fad for us instead of the life changing belief system it was originally.

We do not need to get rid of those outward expressions of our faith. If they are constructive to you then that is fantastic, but we cannot allow them to be the only expression. Instead of pointing out your Jesus fish and condemning the Hindu down the street, spend the day talking with that person looking at each other as souls instead of stick people.

Remember that Jesus walked the roads of Judea and Samaria talking to all the children of Israel, the Roman Centurion, and the Samaritan all without the aid of bumper stickers proclaiming his awesomeness. Paul and Peter did not walk the roads of Rome with Jesus Fish attached to their staffs so everyone knew who they followed. They got out there and had a conversation with someone, set up communities of believers, and listened instead of just talking. Stop talking, start walking, and let your actions not symbols and signs show people why you love Jesus.

About the Author: I am a young, married man who always believed he would be doing something for God. When dreams of seminary and a pulpit did not come to fruition I assumed God had nothing left for me. I was wrong and that is how Nomadic Ministry came to be. It is a place were anyone can come together and talk about God with an open mind and open heart.
