“THE GOOD NEWS”
Remember WWJD (What would Jesus do?) Well it’s time for us to stop asking that question and know, WJD (What Jesus Did.) All stories should include five basic components. Who? What? Where? When? Why?
Who is Jesus? “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matt 16:16)
What did He do? “The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.” (Matthew 11:5-6)
Where did He do it? The whole world, “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
When did He do it? When we needed it most! But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Why did He do it? Because God is love! In this the love of God was manifest toward us, that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (1 John 4:9-11)
PRAYER 4 TODAY
Heavenly Father, it is difficult to walk beside You unless we know who You really are. You have given us Your Son to show mankind exactly who You are. Lord, may we learn who He is and follow His example. May we learn that true happiness and contentment come from obeying, trusting, and loving You.
