WWJD ?

The other day , my mom and sister , Stacy , Watched a movie called WWJD  What Would Jesus Do ?  ( Please watch it ! ) I loved the movie ! It was inspiring , exciting , captivating  . Who doesn't like a movie that holds your attention ? But after I watched it , the letters  WWJD  really hit me  , and caught hold . What would Jesus do ?

Would he fight with his sister ( If he had one ) Like two cats fighting for a mouse ? Would He talk back to His parents ? Would He obey the very instant His parents asked him to do something ? Or would He say " Just a minute !" ? Would He procrastinate and then say " Oops ! Sorry I didn't get that finished ! " Would He gossip ?

Would He ? Would He ? Would He ? Would He ? Would He ? Would He ? Would He ?

Those words pounded against my head like a hammer hitting a nail . "Would He" . No , he wouldn't fight with His sister. No , He wouldn't talk back to His parents . Yes , He would obey the very instant . No , He wouldn't procrastinate . No , He wouldn't gossip ... And all the questions and answers go on .

What Would Jesus Do . At that time I felt ashamed as I thought of all the things that Jesus Would Do , and I hadn't . I felt guilty and shameful as I walked to my bedroom . I closed the door , then kneeled . I then asked Jesus to help me do, What HE Would Do .

So please , ask yourself this question once in awhile , WHAT WOULD JESUS DO ?

WWJD - about everything I don't do...

Ack - it's so hard not to snap back or give the sisterly "glare"

It's so hard to reverse the natural desire of the flesh.

Love you!

*hugs*

Sarah,
I've come to realize how good of a writer you are turning into. You are one smart whipersnapper! Keep it up. Yes, that movie was very good. I know I need to be more concious of WWJD, because many times I'm not- I do what I WANT to do. Love ya sis! ~Stacy

I read this when it came out. And I didn't comment, because it was so simple in its profundity.

And it hurt to think about.

Because what Jesus would do...well, I'll never be a fraction as holy, perfect, good and loving as He would. And I want to be like Jesus. So that means - ouch - killing sin. My pet sins, too.

It's mind boggling how perfect I can seem until I compare myself to Jesus. It's then that I love grace.

Fantastic post, Sarah. Made me think. {{{hug}}}

It seems depressing some times when you think about how perfect Jesus is and how unperfect we are.It isn't all ways easy to do what Jesus would.As a matter of fact it's impossible!If we always did what He would...we'd be perfect!Perfection...it's something we're supposed to strive toward,but will never succed at.

I loved this post and how you touch upon one of the most important questions...what would Jesus do?
