Would Jesus Do That


I was thinking about taking a big action concerning someone who had hurt me terribly for decades that I felt would bring me much relief and satisfaction and greatly improve my well-being and future.

Then Jesus interrupted my thoughts.

“Would I ever do that?” I heard the Spirit of Christ speak to my heart.

Would the Lord Jesus Christ make decisions based on self? No.

Jesus in His time on this earth humbled Himself.

Jesus prayed to the Father in heaven.

Jesus submitted to God the Father.

Jesus obeyed the Father.

Jesus loved the Father. Jesus loved others.

Jesus did not live for self.

Jesus denied self.

Jesus lived for the Father and for others.

Jesus died to self.

Jesus died on the cross and was raised from the dead.

Believers in Jesus are not to live for self.

We are to deny self.

We are to die to self.

We are to pray.

We are to live for God.

We are to love God with all our hearts.

We are to love each other.

Back to the question the Lord asked me. Would Jesus do that? No.

What would Jesus do?

Die to self. Pray to God. Follow God.

What should you and I do?

Die to self. Pray to God. Follow Jesus forevermore! Amen!

I knew what I needed to do.

It is what we are all called to do every single day.

Friend, deny yourself.

Friend, take up your cross.

Friend, die to self.

Friend, live for Jesus. Forever and ever, AMEN!

“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” Luke 9:23 NKJV

“and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” 2 Corinthians 5:15 NKJV
