Dear God, can I get that Lamborghini…for our church?

If you are given to health, wealth and prosperity gospel making dubious prayers then I have one more request for you. Name and claim this now! Don’t look at the picture of the world’s first super bus. It’s been made to grace the speed of a Lamborghini but embrace the soft and finer comforts of a luxury jet. It could make a good means of transport to go on state banquets missions and show off to other celebrities “to preach the gospel” if you are a millionaire televangelist. For other earthlings and lesser mortals, who want to know more …

You might be waiting a while for one of these to pull up at the local bus stop. This is the world’s first super bus, crafted with state-of-the-art materials which seats 23 passengers and had a top speed of 155mph (250km/h).

Developed in Holland by an astronaut and a former Formula One aerodynamics expert, the midnight-blue, electric-powered vehicle costs £7 million and was flown to the United Arab Emirates where it will be used by a sheikh.

The high-tech bus means he will be able to complete the 75-mile commute from Dubai to neighbouring Abu Dhabi in under 30 minutes.

Made of lightweight materials including aluminium, carbon fibre, fibreglass and polycarbonate, it is 49ft long (15 metres), 8ft wide (2.5 metres) and 5ft 5in high (1.65 metres).

Passengers will be able to enjoy comfort equal to that of a luxury limousine or private jet. The super bus has eight gullwing-style doors on each side to allow for a swift exit.

It would be a great thing if God gave me a Lamborgini but I don’t think I would be happy. My road tax would go up. My fuel bills would sky rocket. My insurance would hit the roof. And I would be worried at night that somebody might be stealing a bolt or a nut from its hind tyre. Yikes, even children walking past it after sunday school could scratch it with their bibles.

But oh, the one thing I would really want to do is to glorify God and enjoy Him for ever.  And like Paul be content with whatever I have.  Afterall one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.

Wait a minute. There’s a knock on the door. Ha ha! Could it be a Lamborghini for me? No, it’s another water bill to be paid. Grrrrr. 😉
