Advance the Kingdom

Posted: May 24, 2016

Do you remember W.W.J.D. bracelets? Meant to be a constant, visual reminder of “What Would Jesus Do,” those bracelets were all the rage in Christian circles in the 1990s (and were available in every color, even rainbow!). Though no longer an everyday accessory, the message is still pertinent. When we pray, “may your Kingdom come, may your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven,” what does that mean? As we strive to become more like Christ, asking ourselves, “what would Jesus do?” and when we choose to respond by the power of the Spirit, which indwells in us as His believers, we are advancing His Kingdom on earth. 

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

- Romans 12:2

Lord Jesus, I pray that your kingdom would come and that your will would be done in my life. Help me to become more like Christ so I can glorify You and advance Your kingdom on earth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
