When you are looking for a profit as an auto manufacturer certain cars are big time losers yet still remain in the lineup, simply because what they bring to the brand name. What did the Corvette do for Chevy or the Viper for Dodge and my favorite the GSX for Buick. Limited production means high cost, high quality and high content with little chance to recover the expense. Thus the term Halo Cars because they their halo brings a glow to the whole brand.
Image, Identity; a brand that loses that dies, notably Oldsmobile or Studebaker, sadly Pontiac as opposed to a brand with a phenomenally resilient identity no matter who owns it, Jeep. The enemy of your soul knows this all to well, his temptations and attracts if you really dig into them at their core it will be identity. Look at how he came after Jesus in the wilderness, time and again it was His identity, “If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” and “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, “’
Dig a little deeper on the third temptation and you will see identity at the core as well. Matthew 4:8 “All these things I will give You, if You fall down and worship me.” The question is: Would the Son of God take a short cut to His Kingdom? Answer: No, not the Son of the Father. I believe inside Jesus identity their is at His heart sonship and opening that up really answers much on the topic of identity.
Look up the word “son” ,”BEN” Hebrew in the Blue Letter Bible (Strongs H1121) and there you will see the amazing and I mean amazing purpose for a son “A Builder of The Family Name”. Yep you are a HALO car for your family name, low production, high cost, quality and content, “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made” to quote Psalm 139:14.
Spend a moment with me on the fact that you were fearfully made, that word “Fearfully”, like the “fear of the Lord is meant to strike AWE!!! You know its true when you were born everyone said, “Ahhhhhhh”, (God really gave that to me this morning and I laughed and laughed.) Yet, so much truth is in that, YOU HAVE A HALO, a special sauce, God designed you to reflect a unique part of His glory and if you don’t reflect that glory no one else can, yes you have His glory and it shines, a Halo for God’s brand and builds the family name. Because you are a son of God, Galatians 3:26.
Jesus the ultimate Son and the ultimate builder of the family name was our Halo of Halo Cars. Yet that Halo that identity of yours like Jesus’ identity has been attacked your whole life. One of the secrets to discovering your Halo is to analyze the assault on your life from our enemy Satan.
