WWJD? was a movement that began in the 1990s, and it stood for "What would Jesus do?"

As trite as that might sound on the surface as perhaps something overheard like a "top hit" song, I do believe there is a greater way to live if one makes it through the surface to explore what those four words truly represent.

As Christmas Day quickly approaches and those of us in the Christian family reflect on the coming of our Savior, I pray many stop to measure and assess their daily choices up against the character of Christ.... after all that is the true meaning of being a Christian... being found in His image, doing as He would do.

In this hurry up, get there, me first society, how are we doing?  I know at my place of business I personally come into contact with at least 500 people on a daily basis. Let me tell you, the challenge is REAL to keep BOTH action and heart upright before Him!

I get it.... it is very difficult to deal with the avalanche of selfishness (ourselves counted therein!) on a daily, minute by minute basis, that wants the world to be exactly as it perceives it should be to suit itself.

But I do believe we were more on track during the WWJD movement than we currently are, and I do believe it would benefit if we would get back to asking ourselves as we roll out of bed, as we interact with family members, as we get behind the wheel of a car, as we interact with the public, and as we roll back into bed at night....


Cause I am confident He would be doing life VERY differently than the way most of us are doing it currently.

Let us not just celebrate His coming this Christmas, but let us make it our daily task to truly become disciples in His image... after all, we are to be His image bearers.

Go in righteous, peace, and joy....

For the Kingdom of God
is not a matter of eating and drinking, 
but of righteousness, peace, and joy
in the Holy Spirit.

Romans 14:17
