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 '90s (available in every color, even rainbow! My dog ate mine. Not kidding.).
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?” reminds us to choose to respond by the power of the Spirit, which indwells in us as believers, and then we are helping to advance 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, church, community, and world. Help me to become more like Christ so I can glorify You and advance Your kingdom on earth. In Jesus’ name, amen.
