What Would Jesus Do or What Did Jesus Do?
We who profess the name of Christ spend too much time thinking about and asking,"what would Jesus do" and not enough time thinking about and asking, "what did Jesus do?" Christ did not come to make bad people good but to make dead people alive. If we focus more on our performance for Jesus rather than on Jesus' performance for us we will end up with dead orthodoxy, lifeless legalism, or hollow religious moralism.
