What Did Jesus Do?
“The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either, but right through every human heart....” - Alexander Solzhenitsyn
There’s a well-known illustration showing a tiny angel sitting on one side of a man’s shoulders and an equally miniature devil sitting on the other. Both are whispering in the man’s ear, trying to persuade him to do what they suggest. It's a humorous depiction of the serious battle that rages within us every day.
This internal conflict has led to the phrase, “What would Jesus do?” Emblazoned on necklaces and bracelets, it suggests that we ask ourselves what Jesus would do if He were faced with our situation, whatever it is. It’s easy to speculate about what Christ might do, but our conclusion is not always accurate. It can be tainted by our own beliefs and our own desires.
As Stuart Briscoe explains in this 8-message series, a better idea is to study what Jesus DID do, learn why He did it, and then apply that to our decisions.
