Hebrew 12:2 -Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
WWJD means what will Jesus do .
This is a question every believer needs to ask his or herself before taking an action or saying something. According to Heb 12:2 , Jesus should be our role model . We should model our lives,speech or thoughts after him.Ephesians 5:1 says Be you therefore followers of God, as dear children.
How can we model our lives after Jesus ?by doing what He did, by seeing people the way He saw people, by acting the way He acted,by dealing with challenges the way he dealt with challenges.What Jesus do ? According to Acts 10:38 , He went about doing good.
How did He see people?When they brought the woman caught in adultery in John 8:1-12 , He didn’t condemn her,He didn’t look down her, he didn’t say women cannot be trusted, with love He told her go and sin no more.
How did He act? According to John 13:1-17,He washed the feet of His disciples.He was a leader who served His followers.Are you serving those the Lord has committed to your hands or you are busy expecting them to call you boss or use sir when they address you? Despite all peter did to Him, He forgave him. Peter was one of the closest disciples to Jesus,Jesus promised that on him will He build His church -Matthew 16:18, Jesus helped Peter come out of failure when he fished all night and caught nothing -Luke 5:1-5,He even showed Peter His glory at the mount of transfiguration -Matthew 17:1-13 and what did Peter do after all this ? He denied Jesus three times! Despite all this ,Jesus still forgave him and used him .
In what way has that individual offended you and you have sworn never to forgive him or her? Please forgive them .
Prayer Point: Father help me to model my life after Jesus.
