Book traces origin of phrase in WWJD movement to Topeka minister, social activist. LAWRENCE — When Christians began wearing bracelets with the acronym for ” What would Jesus do ?” in the 1990s, the phrase was a reminder for them to attempt to act in a way that personifies Jesus ‘ teachings from the Gospels.
He Would Love First is a movement answering the question “What Would Jesus Do “. Our mission is to unmask Jesus to the world and to cultivate a culture of His expressed love all over the world.
What did Jesus actually do for us ? Jesus experienced death and resurrection in order to defeat sin’s power in our lives. Jesus proclaimed His victory over those who were defeating us . Jesus has allowed us to identify with Him. Jesus rules and reigns with perfect judgement.

WWJD is an acronym for What Would Jesus Do . This sentiment is an admonition to make decisions and live one’s life in the same way that Jesus Christ would. The phrase What Would Jesus Do was coined by Reverand Charles Sheldon, a Congregationalist Church minister in Topeka, Kansas in 1886.
The phrase had a resurgence in the US and elsewhere in the 1990s and as a personal motto for adherents of Christianity who used the phrase as a reminder of their belief in a moral imperative to act in a manner that would demonstrate the love of Jesus through the actions of the adherents.

That is where I was able to purchase my HWLF bracelet . They send you two bracelets even when you order only one because they want you to “pay it forward” to someone else. They ask you to share the love of Christ with someone and then give them the bracelet and explain what the motive behind your action was.
Today we’ d like to introduce you to Casey Shultis. Casey, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to the apostles and asked them for something to eat , to prove that he was alive bodily and not just a vision. They gave him a piece of broiled fish and he ate it. (Luke 24:42-43).
Jesus’s death is the penalty or “satisfaction” for sin . Satisfaction was an idea used in the early church to describe the public actions – pilgrimage, charity – that a christian would undertake to show that he was grateful for forgiveness. Only Jesus can make satisfaction because he is without sin .
However, knowing the identity of Jesus is critical. It is important for us to get the identity of Jesus right – otherwise we will relate to Him in the wrong way. 9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
