Just Do It

I am sure you recognize this as Nike's slogan. It is also good to apply to out daily lives and it is also Biblical. The Greek word "Nike" means victory. If we want to have victory in our lives we have to "Just Do It", which begs the question....Do What?

James 4:17
Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.

Do the right thing. The question is not what should I do but, what will I do when faced with a choice. So, when we are presented with that choice and know the right thing to do we need to "Just Do It" We are presented with choices daily, actually many times a day. A few years ago there was a popular saying WWJD, which stood for What Would Jesus Do? That is a good question but a better question is WWID, What Will I Do? As we develop the mind of Christ we are able to discern what Jesus would do in a situation. Once we know that we then need to translate that into action. So today when you see an opportunity to help someone, pray for someone, witness to someone, encourage someone.......
Just Do It.
