There is a company in our town called “Campbell and Company”. It’s a heating and air conditioning company, so they have several technicians who go out and work on HVAC. I have seen their trucks around town. For each technician, they have advertising on the side of the truck that says “Campbell and _______” and they display the name of the technician there.
Imagine my surprise the other morning on my way to work to see a truck declaring “Campbell and Jesus”.
Immediately my thoughts turned to the advertising I do as I go through my day. As a Christian, I am supposed to be advertising Jesus. How many days do I actually do that? If I’m not advertising Jesus, then what am I advertising?
How about you?

I have seen that truck, and I'm pretty sure the "Jesus" is an Hispanic man named Jesus...but like you, I did a double-take. I'm pretty sure my thought was, "He's in the wrong seat." Jesus should come first. He's not the co-pilot--we bear His name.
I like your thought about advertising...as a print ad, is my "text" clear? Or are my graphics distracting from His message?
Thanks for thinking...and for giving me something about which to think.
