What has Jesus Done vs. What would Jesus Do

It has experienced explosive growth among Christians. Capturing public awareness—at least in the Christian world—the phrase has become a buzzword:

What would Jesus Do?

How popular is the phrase? Well, the acronym, WWJD, is  known by scores of people, even non-Christians are beginning to recognize its meaning.

The question sounds so impressive that many believers have made it the gold standard of measurement. Facing a problem in life? Then ask yourself the question, WWJD? Prepare to be dazzled as the solution wondrously appears in the form of down-to-earth, easily applied advice. WWJD roots Christians in the real world, where problems can be solved through good old, practical know-how.

But a growing number of Christians are weary of an approach to life that sees challenges only as problems to be solved by practical means. Many believers are craving a richer diet when it comes to pondering life and faith. They crave mystery over know how. They also see God as more than Mr. Fix-It and Christ as Junior Mr. Fix-It.

For these Christians, the deeper, more satisfying question to ask is, ‘What has Jesus done?’ See what Mike Horton has to say. Read about it here. By regarding what Jesus has already done (rather than what he would do), we peer into a mystrery that is inexhaustible in its depth and complexity. Yet this mystery–what Jesus has done on the cross–has a direct bearing on our lives. What Jesus has done is die for our sins and rise to new life.
