What Does the Phrase “What Would Jesus Do?” Really Mean?

The question, “What Would Jesus Do?” (WWJD) is a shortened form of asking: What did Jesus do in situations like this? What would Jesus do in a situation like mine? How can I emulate Him? These three questions provide a solid framework for your day-to-day operations on this side of eternity. If you desire to live your life in a way that is consistent with this WWJD framework, here is what you need to do. First, you must learn the total counsel of God. This is done by reading your bible from cover to cover. With this word base in your spirit, you will be able to model the heart of Jesus in your own day.

WWJD is like a meditation upon this question: “In light of all that I know about Jesus’ character and divine principles, how would He direct me to respond in this situation?” This makes you see that you cannot answer the “What Would Jesus Do?” question without a commitment to intimacy with Jesus. You grow in intimacy with the Lord through reading the word and a true spiritual worship. This is the kind of intimacy that leads you into the perfect Imitatio Christi (Imitation of Christ). You imitate Jesus so well, that people will see the good you do and will praise your Father in heaven.

Without a trail of good works to show for your followership of Jesus. Your Christian experience is unfruitful. As a watchman tasked with steering your world towards a better future. You should be conscious of your need to operate a salt of the earth. You season the earth with your superior mode of operations. Furthermore, you are the light of your world. Your world is dark and devoid of all hope, without your contributions. So, when situations arise, you do not cower away in fear or uncertainty. That is the response of the carnal man, untrained in eternal affairs. You only have to check your spirit and determine your response to the call-to-action; WWJD.
