Speaker: Kris MacQueen
John 1:4 “Life was in him, and that life was the light for all people.”
Who remembers the wrist band slogan-turned-acronym: “WWJD (what would Jesus do)? On some level, sure, this is helpful, particularly for “should I or shouldn’t I?” kinds of questions. But as a prime way of expressing the Kingdom in our lives, it falls a bit short of the biblical idea of “Christ in us”.
“…as a disciple of Jesus I am with him, by choice and by grace, learning from him how to live in the kingdom of God. This is the crucial idea. That means…to say that I am learning from Jesus to live my life as he would live my life if he were I. I am not necessarily learning to do everything he did, but I am learning how to do everything I do in the manner that he did all that he did.” – Dallas Willard, “The Divine Conspiracy” – Emphasis mine.
In this talk we ask the question: What would it mean “to live my life as he would live my life if he were I”?
