I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t, and die to find out there is!

What Would Jesus Do?

JesusImage via Wikipedia
Question: "What would Jesus do?" is still popular right now, and was very popular in the recent past, especially among the young. Does it really have any application to how Christians are to live their lives?

Absolutely! WWJD can be applied to every event and decision in our lives; right now, today! In view of 1 John 2:6, we ought to constantly be asking ourselves this question.  You see, the standard for Christian living is not the Ten Commandments (though we need to heed them), and it's not even the Golden Rule (though we ought to heed it)-- the standard is Jesus Himself. The Lord Jesus gave His disciples a new law to live by: John 13:34, and the example of Himself. Jesus is our model. You are wrong if you ask yourself "What would other Christians tell me to do?" And wrong even if you ask "What would other Christians do?" But you will always be right if you ask "What would Jesus do?" and then do the same. Of course, you must know Jesus before you can know what Jesus would do.


Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.
1 John 2:6

Be blessed,
