Do you ever drive by a billboard and feel “slimed” by its picture or message? Do you ever cover your children’s eyes so they can’t see a billboard as you drive by?
Well, now you can. And believe me, people not only notice but there are times a picture of the cross will save a life. Let me explain.
A couple of weeks ago I called a man named Marshall Books. Marshall works for an
outdoor company installing vinyls on their billboards. One hot summer morning
he had been contemplating suicide when he got a call to hang another billboard
vinyl. Marshall hung the vinyl, then
climbed down the ladder and stepped back to see a cross with the message, “He
is risen”. Marshall never put up a religious billboard before. He said, “I felt relieved. Something lifted off of my shoulders.” Marshall gave his heart to Jesus Christ.
I’m eager to tell you a few cross stories in upcoming blogs! I have a sweet stack of incredible stories on how lives are being changed by the cross. I’ll bet you have a few stories, too!

Let’s pray and ask God to help us make a difference on the highways of America. There are people who are angry at God. But there are also people who are looking for answers. Let me know what you think?
