Would Jesus do it?

(Thomas Sherman, “Divine Breathings; Or, a Pious Soul Thirsting after Christ”)

“I have set you an example–that you should do as I have done for you.” John 13:15

When anything presents itself, think: if He were alive and in my place–would Jesus do it? Or if I were about to die–would I still do it?

I must walk–as He has walked; and I must live–as I intend to die. If the thing in question is not Christ’s will–it is my sin. And if I die in that sin–it will be my ruin.

I will therefore in every action so conduct myself–as if Christ were on the one hand–and death on the other!

“Leaving you an example, so that you should follow in His steps.” 1 Peter 2:2
