    Short pithy messages or verses are great on shirts... but it begs the question, "Would we be willing to wear such a shirt in a Muslim country?" My point is, we have to back up such statements on our shirts etc with actually telling people - verbally - the Gospel message... even if it means persecution...

    In my experience, good theological statements rarely fit on bumper stickers or tee shirts.

    Yep, I gave up on the bumper stickers a long time ago... there are a lot of very self-righteous drivers out there, and there is no way to explain your driving action to someone who is loudly hooting you or gesticulating at you! That is if you did something minor and was not deliberately rude...

    Check out this Jesus, coffee t-shirt ( Coffee And Jesus T-shirt ). The website also has other Christian t-shirt designs. Hope this is helpful. But verses that tell people that they are loved by Jesus may encourage the people behind. Something like, "Jesus loves you. And love never say, 'I love you, do you love me? It always says, 'i love you and that is all.' -Dan Mohler.

    If you're entering a marathon and want a T shirt with a verse on the back JUST to "stir up faith in others"; a) you have to make sure you're always in the front/middle of the runners so there are some people behind to see it.
    b) I'd say, either ask the Lord which verse would be best or choose your favourite, so that if you are asked about it, you can give a testimony/say it means something to you.
    And c) pray that other people will see it - they will be running and may not notice - and ask questions.

    But people usually run marathons either for a sense of personal achievement, get a good time etc, or to promote a good cause and raise money for that cause. If you are doing it for neither of those reasons, don't like running and don't want to pay to enter something you don't like - why do it? Why not just buy a t shirt with John 3:16 on it and wear it to go shopping/to the gym/to meet friends or whatever?
