WWJD? What DID Yeshua (Jesus) Do?

Do you remember the “WWJD” craze of the 90’s? Sometimes it felt like everywhere you turned (especially in a church setting) you were confronted with it.  Even non-believers were proudly sporting bracelets, shirts, book covers and who knows what else that was adorned with those fascinating four letters (well, really three), ‘WWJD.’  As we look back and reflect on those times and take a hard look at what we believed and why we believed it we found that there is a corresponding question that has to go hand in hand with it.  Without asking this question it’s rather difficult to say with any certainty that the answer we would come up with to the question “WWJD” is the right one.  The question that must follow is, “What DID Yeshua (Jesus) Do?”

He is the one friend that will stick closer than a brother.
He is the One who willingly laid down His life as the perfect sacrifice.

“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me. And where I am, there My servant also shall be. If anyone serves Me, the Father shall value him.” –John 12:26

FOLLOW ME

What does it mean to follow? Based on the simplest definition of the word we know with certainty that it does not mean calling the shots and leading. One cannot follow someone and at the same time lead that same person. They are mutually exclusive.

Trampling On Yeshua

“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?” – Hebrews 10:26-29
