We have a question for all of us! A very important question that should take more than just a moment of thought. One that should piece our very core just at the thought of it. Are you ready for the question? How is it going to make you feel when you ask your self this question? Let’s find out.
What if you stopped for a moment or two before you make a decision, before you spend the money, before you respond back to your husband or children, before you share the gossip that is burning a hole in your tongue, before you allow your self to partake in the secret sin that you think no one knows about… Have you stopped and asked yourself, “What would Jesus do?” Think about it: “What would Jesus do?”
Take a few minutes and judge yourself by these words, “What would Jesus do?” Are you under conviction already? Is God showing you areas that need to be corrected? Are there areas in your marriage that these words pierce in your heart?
A friend of mine recommended a book called, “In His Steps” by Charles Sheldon. First published in 1896, it is available for free online at:
Our walk (or so we call it) was shaken apart after reading the first two chapters. We saw ourselves as so much less than who we could or should be! We are ugly, stinky and yucky for a lack of better words. There are no good words to describe us if it were not for the cross and the Blood Jesus shed for us!
If you take this challenge/pledge you to will be forced to see yourself through different eyes. It’s not going to be easy. You will most likely find yourself on the floor in sorrow and shame.
But don’t let your heart faint. There is good news. Each day you are in the pledge, you will grow in your understanding and love for God and His creation. You will change along with every relationship you hold close to your heart.
A successful marriage starts with us! If we are on track with God doing things that He wants us to do, desires us to do, everything else in our lives will follow suit.
Reading this means you are willing to take the challenge.
Here are the rules:
1. To pledge ourselves to do everything in our daily lives after asking the question, “What would Jesus do?” regardless of what may be the result to us.
“For here unto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye should follow his steps.” 1 Peter 2:21
2. When you come to a place in your day where you are not sure what Jesus would do, listen to the Holy Spirit for the right answer even when it’s not the popular answer or causes others to turn against you because of what you do. Sometimes walking it is the hardest part. Trust God…He is the one leading you!
“He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” 1 John 2:6
3. Share your stories here. Comment with what is happening to you as you “Walk Like Jesus Walked” so we can encourage one another in our pledge.
We look forward to hearing from those who take the pledge with us!
