An Insight Into Jesus’ Time Alone with the Father
When I was a new Christian, all the cool kids were wearing bracelets with the letters WWJD stitched into the fabric. Of course, WWJD stood for “What Would Jesus Do” and it served as a reminder to believers to stop and model our lives on the One who came for us and gave Himself for us, Jesus Christ.
John Piper once said
“Imitation is not salvation. But salvation brings imitation”
There is a very important truth in the WWJD question; that we can look to Jesus, not just as our Saviour and Lord, but also as our example in life, seeking emulate His life, ministry, wisdom and most important of all His relationship with the Father.
Jesus had a Devotional Life
Do you realise that Jesus had a devotional life? You could say His entire life was lived in devotion to God and that would be true. But just as Jesus was 100% God He also came in the flesh of a man, 100% man, and so was subject to many of the same constraints in His life as you and I.
With that being the case, WWJD is a good question to ask in regards to how we cultivate an intimate devotional life with the Father like Jesus did.
