WWJD

WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?

That is a great saying that is making its way onto pencils,T-Shirts,Note pads, etc, as WWJD. It is really thought-provoking and should make us stop and think before we do anything…but I think a better saying would be: WWJWMTD? “What would Jesus want me to do?”  For instance:

Jesus could go into a temple and run the money-changers out with a whip. He had the authority to do that for His Father’s house. We do not.

There are many things that Jesus would do that He would not want us to do. He could associate with vile and sinful people and not be influenced by them. We (especially young people) can not.

The Bible lets us know that “Bad company corrupts good character” (1 Corinthians 15:33) and Jesus was strong enough to not fall prey to that. We are not.

He was and is the Great Physician and that is why He spent time with them. He could heal people from their sins.

Once a man who was healed of demon possession wanted to follow Jesus wherever He went. That sounds like a good thing, but that wasn’t what Jesus wanted him to do. 

This remarkable setting is in: Mark 5:18-19 (King James Version) And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

Always ask: ‘What would Jesus want me to do?’, instead of What would Jesus do? It fits in with the Scripture better and we can find precisely what He would want us to do…in the Bible.
