WWJD

At one stage, every Christian young person in the UK had one.

It's probably 20 years since the WWJD wristbands were introduced. And they were hot property among the holy hipsters.

Would Would Jesus Do?

The purpose was to remind us as we went about every day life to think about how Jesus might have responded to whatever situation we found ourselves and that as a result we lived better lives.

This week I have been thinking about that concept...and the more I have considered it, the more one-dimensional it seems.

As we live our life, of course there is no harm in thinking how Jesus might have reacted or acted, but there is a truth that is far more compelling....we don't just live as Jesus might have, we live in the knowledge that Jesus is living with us...NOW.

It's not just about What Would Jesus Do?

It's about What Is Jesus DOING?

This is a living, breathing, day-to-day, relationship. We are not simply confined to recreating the character of an historical character, we get to ask Him - ASK JESUS! - directly how we should think, speak and act.

In Hebrews 13:8 it says that "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." The God who was there at the beginning of time, creating the universe is the same God who walked the earth 2,000 years ago, and that God is the same God we are now in daily conversation with, the God who is guiding our steps, and the God who has promised us eternal life.

Someone made a very simple challenge to me recently - if you believe Jesus is with you now, then speak to him.

Jesus is not just an historical figure. Jesus is not an ethereal concept. Jesus is as real as anything else and anyone else you are in relationship with.

And it doesn't even stop there. It is not only a living Jesus that we are walking WITH, it is a living Jesus that lives IN US.

In Galatians 2:20 Paul write, “I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me.”

Here, Paul did not say “I live in a Christ-like way,” or, “I glorify Christ through my behavior.” No, he said, “Christ…lives in me,” clearly telling us that Christ lives in those who believe in Him. 

The Christian life is not a matter of behaving like Christ, but of allowing Christ Himself to live in and through us.

What a promise. What a reality!
