I read about a woman who was stopped by a policeman for going through a stop sign. He walked up to the side of the car, looked at her and said, "I’m going to have to give you a ticket you for going through a stop sign." She said, "You’ve got to be kidding. I didn’t drive through any stop sign. I just drove up to it slowly, looked both ways and then I ’oozed’ through it." The policeman responded, "But the sign doesn’t say ’ooze.’ It says ’stop.’" As she continued to speak to him, he weakened and decided not to give her a ticket but instead just issued a warning. But before letting her go he said, "From now on, if you see a sign that says ’ooze’ you ’ooze.’ But if it says ’stop’ you ’stop.’" It was not only what the sign said. It was the authority that was behind it. In a similar way, it is not simply what Christ said. It was the authority with which He said it.
