But those who obey God’s word truly show
how completely they love Him.
That is how we know we are living in Him.
Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.
1 John 2:5-6
Back in the 1990s many Christians wore bracelets with the letters “WWJD” on them. WWJD stood for “What Would Jesus Do?” People who wore these bracelets did so as a way to remember to ask themselves that question all day long. For example, if they were being accused by a coworker for something they had not done, they would stop, look at their bracelet, and ask themselves, “What would Jesus do…if He was being falsely accused?”
This verse from 1 John tells us, “Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” Am I living every day of my life like Jesus did? Am I compassionate like He was? Am I willing to stand up for injustice like He did? Am I willing to be a Jesus-follower in every area of my life?
As you go through the day, why not check to see if you’re living your life as Jesus did by asking yourself, “What would Jesus do in this situation?”
