Many know the acronym WWJD, for what would Jesus do. The phrase was a reminder of the Christian’s belief in a moral responsibility to act in a manner that would demonstrate the love of Jesus through their actions. Many wore bracelets and necklaces with these letters. Many have thought about what Jesus would do but they should think about what Jesus wants us to do. This blog is dedicated into helping others learn about Christ, how to become closer to God and how to be a better Christian. If one truly wants these things then their main focus, other than accepting Christ, should be living a life pleasing to the Heavenly Father. So we know how Christ lived a sinless life, was loving, giving and helped others; so to answer this most important question is simply to live as Christ.
To live as Christ we should live like he would, if he was here today. No we can’t live a sinless life, but we can show love, compassion and think of others more than ourselves. Today I watched the new San Andreas film. The Film is suppose to represent how things will be when a major earthquake hits California, Nevada, etc… The movie was interesting and wasn’t too bad as far as filthiness goes. I don’t think it showed the true nature of how people might act in tragedy. One man pushed another man into the street, so he got swept away. This same man seemed to care only for himself, when he left a teenage girl all alone in a parking garage. Some men were stealing but I believe things will be much worse.
It is times like tragedy that shows a man’s true nature. How one might act in trials and tribulations show his true heart. Recently I went through the most trying time in my life and I questioned why. Now I see how trials and tribulations show God your heart. He wants to know who you choose. Do you choose yourself and live for yourself, or do you choose Christ and live for Christ? Time will certainly tell. All I know that to live without Christ is a most miserable life; a life without hope, a life full of sorrow and fear. If you don’t know Christ as your Lord and Savior I urge you to do so now. You may not have a tomorrow; you may not live another day. That might sound cliché but it is so true. Death can happen at any time or at any hour. It doesn’t matter how healthy you are. Many healthy people die in tragedies.
Often when I pray, I ask the Lord to guide me and keep me on the straight and narrow path. Don’t ever think you are above temptation or trial. God trieth the hearts of his people (Psalm 7:9). I encourage you to seek God wholly and ask him to guide you in your Christian walk. It will not always be easy, but your reward will be eternal, reserved in Heaven for you. 1 Peter 1:4 says, “To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.”
Psalm 7:9-Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
Proverbs 17:3-The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the Lord trieth the hearts.
Colossians 3:12-17-Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
