Would Jesus Have Done This?

Charles Spurgeonby Charles Spurgeon

How God Condemned Sin

Such are the assemblage of graces found only in Jesus, each sparkling with peerless luster, and all blending with such exquisite gracefulness–that we are at once moved with awe and touched with love as we contemplate Him.

Such majesty–and yet such meekness in His demeanor. Such solemnity–and yet such tenderness in His speech. So impartial in judgment–and yet so forgiving in temper. So full of zeal–and yet so equally full of patience. So keen to detect malice–and yet so slow to resent it. Such a wise mentor–and yet such a gentle sympathizing friend.

Jesus was perfectly . . . innocent, harmless, gentle, meek, loving, tender. All His words were love. All His actions were kindness.

We would never commit a sin, if we would but first say to ourselves, “Would Jesus have done this?”
