What would Jesus Do?

They say that you should ask
"Oh what would Jesus do?"
I think these words were spoken
to relate to me with you

If I were Jesus I would go
and "turn the other cheek"
I know thats what I'm told to do
but that makes me feel week.

But If that cheek was turned to you
I'd let you slap me hard
You'd blame your sins on what I did
and play the same old cards.

I know if I was Jesus
exactly how I'd act
but it's so hard to never sin
and never hit you back

I know right? sometimes I go from being radically in love with God to wondering if im even worthy to be called a chritsian. At other times I just don't care, and my faith is merely intellectuall and lacks all desire for action in either prayer or service, and there are certainly times when my faith in God has no love. A friend reminded me that a relationship with God was like a fireman's pole, you either shimmy up like a mad man or you slide slowly back down, you can't stay still long, no m... (more »)

Jesus doesn't want you to be perfect but he wants you to be his. So he will always forgive you.

I completely understand. Sometimes I wish I could just scream "What  Jesus  WANT you to do" instead. We can't all die on the cross.

i completely agree with your comment - Jesus wants you to do something specific, and not what he would do. the meaning of this message is flawless
