What would Jesus Do?

A.B. Simpsonby A.B. Simpson

Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God —Romans 15:7

Our text sets forth a sublime principle, and it will give sublimity to all of life. It is stated elsewhere in similar language, Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus (Colossians 3:17).

This is our high calling, to represent Christ and act in His behalf and in His character and spirit under all circumstances and toward all persons. “What would Jesus do?” is a simple question which will settle every difficulty, and always settle it on the side of love.

But we cannot answer this question rightly without having Jesus Himself in our hearts. We cannot act Christ. This is too grave a matter for acting. We must have Christ and simply be natural and true to the life within us. Then that fife within us will act itself out.

How easy it is to love everyone and see nothing but loveliness, when our hearts are filled with Christ. How every difficulty melts away and everyone we meet seems clothed with the ‘Spirit within us when we are filled with His presence.

Messiah And His Duplicates

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

When I give a message or teaching, I record it. The original recording is called the master. The master is put into a duplicating machine filled with blanks which become duplicates of the master. The blanks are imprinted with the information from the master and become copies of the master.

Messiah is called the Master. If you call Him your Master, it means you have to become His duplicate. I Peter 2:21 says Messiah left us an example to follow. The Greek word for example is huppogrammos which means the writing that was placed under the paper for the scribes to trace. It was the ancient version of masters and duplicates. So if you call Him Master, become His duplicate. Get plugged into Him, receive the imprint of His love, His wisdom, His righteousness, His purity, His heart, and His power. Follow His example by walking in His Spirit. Let Him live His life through you, and you will become like Him, an accurate duplicate. Your life will be His life and His life, your life. For if you call Him Master, you must become His duplicate.

Today’s Mission

Today, before acting or reacting, think of what the Lord would do or say and then do likewise.
