What WOULD Jesus Do?   Leave a comment

WWJD – What Would Jesus Do:

He saw sinners and He healed them, delivered them, cast out demons from them. He didn’t talk about them or act like He was better than them. His kindness showed them His love and they became His followers.

Jesus saw the religious Jews (the Pharisees and Sadducees) and rebuked them for being self-righteous. They felt they were better than those sinners. They compared themselves with others like the sinners and felt they were better. That high mindedness caused them to be so blind, the rejected the Savior and they didn’t even know they rejected Him. Like so many in churches do today. They are in church every week and think they are doing such a good work for the Lord; but continually deny Jesus without knowing it. Sin is wrong and it hurts the person, but the Lord drew them to Him without beating them up because of sin. How many people do you talk about because they are a sinner or have sinned? How many do you feel you are better than because someone’s a sinner or a Christian have sinned? Again, look at what Jesus did; He helped the sinners and rebuked the religious people.

We talk so much about people sins but don’t do what Jesus did. You want to see a sinner changed; heal them of their diseases. Cast out their demons. Look at how Jesus drew the Samaritan woman at the well to Him.

Sinners and Christians who’s sinned know they need help, but religious people don’t think they need help.

Look at two certain disciples in the Bible. A man who persecuted Christians, the apostle Paul; a man who denied Jesus not one, not two, but three times, the apostle Peter. We always call ourselves or others great men or women of God. But these two men became great and true men of God. Their works was based on the FACT they believed and trusted in Jesus Christ. Because of that love and devotion, they caused the real church to spread more than what it is doing today. Peter and Paul just simple followed what their Lord Jesus did.

The Lord Jesus tells us the world will know us by our love for one another (John 13:34-35). That’s what drew people to Jesus – LOVE. And that’s what will draw people to Him in today’s time. Not having the biggest church or the best choir or having the best anything. But doing exactly what Jesus did and show His love toward others. Even the homosexuals, the murders, the rapist, the adulteries, the thieves, etc. Jesus didn’t agree with sin, but He knew the best way for them to repent from their sin was to express His love toward them. He met their needs and they left their old lives and took on the new life in Him. They simple followed Him. Isn’t that what’s important?

So, when you think about what Jesus would do. Remember, He would show love by healing, feeding, delivering, casting out the demons, etc.

Acts 10:38; How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him.

Matthew 9:35; And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.

John 13:34-35; A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another.
