The Love of Christ

Location: N/A

By: j.t.

Sometime around 1980, in the spring or summer, my wife, two year old son and myself were going northbound on a state highway in a red ford pickup truck. The reason was that we were going back to haul some furniture, since we were moving. As I was driving, I saw a southbound semi-truck coming toward us and a small camper behind it.
Suddenly, I was given information in my mind that the camper was going to pass as if they did not see me coming.
That would have been a head on collision. Also, I was given the information that I could drive on the shoulder of the road without any concern of any obstructions and that it would be safe to do so. This occurred instantly. No sooner than I received this information, the semi-truck and camper was upon us. Sure enough, the camper came out around to pass the semi,
as if they did not see us. As I pulled over to the shoulder of the road to avoid a head on collision, the camper was in my lane, passing the semi.
But that was not all; as this occurred, I could see, in my mind, angels and the Christ swirling around the pickup truck I was driving, as if they were protecting us. Also, I greatly sensed a love beyond any love I experienced in my life. That love was a love I desired to have again for it was the love of the Christ.
There is no greater love than that of the Christ for which I experienced.
It was beautiful.
