Not many years ago, we watched as the WWJD craze swept through the Christian community. The bracelet-emblazoned theme "What Would Jesus Do?" was a valuable reminder to many people that we should consider the heart and mind of Jesus when making choices. As we seek to live in a way that honours the Saviour, it is appropriate to measure our attitudes and decisions against the example our Lord set for us.
Recently, however, I was in a church where I saw a slightly different message. This church's sign read, "WDJD- What Did Jesus Do?" That is indeed the more important question because our salvation depends on it.
What did Jesus do? He took the suffering and guilt for our wrongdoing and paid our penalty. He died and conquered death so we could live. We will never be able to fully consider what Jesus would do until we have embraced what He did do for us on the cross. ~ Excerpt from Our Daily Bread written by Bill Crowder
WE ARE SAVED NOT BY WHAT WE DO BUT BY TRUSTING WHAT CHRIST HAS DONE.
Here in Canada, we are celebrating the Thanksgiving weekend. I am reminded once again how blessed I am to live in a country where I can worship my God in freedom. We can gather peacefully around our tables and give thanks and enjoy the bounty before us.
I want to thank you all for your ongoing prayers on my behalf and that of my family. The situation has not changed but I am feeling better myself and more able to cope, knowing the Lord is in control!
Please join our wonderful hostesses Charlotte and Ginger for Spiritual Sundays. http://bloggerspirit.blogspot.com/ and have a beautiful and blessed weekend in Him.
