What Would Jesus Pin?

Sin of Presumption

The phrase “What would Jesus do?” (often abbreviated to WWJD) became popular in the United States in the 1990s and as a personal motto for adherents of Evangelical 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. This saying has become a guiding principle for many Christians.

As simple as it seems, the question—What would Jesus Do?—still leaves us wondering.

However, we’re flipping that around and asking you the question, WWJP—Would #Jesus Pin? or Post? Do You Really Want to Know?

First Peter 2:21 says that Jesus left us “an example, that we should follow in his steps.” So, it’s admirable and biblical to ask “WWJP —What would Jesus Pin?” 

Everyone who knows anything about the gospels—and even those who don’t—knows at a basic level that Jesus was a friend of #sinners. Yet we find ourselves constantly challenged by Jesus’s example to make sure we do not turn away outsiders in a way that Jesus never would.

If the truth be told Jesus was a friend of sinners not because he winked at sin, ignored sin, or enjoyed light-hearted revelry with those engaged in immorality. Jesus was a friend of sinners in that he came to save sinners.

We looked at the four gospels with the above question in mind and discovered seven priorities that guided Jesus. He would seek the Father for the strength and wisdom to embrace, restore, confront, teach, serve, and equip the people around him.

These seven priorities should drive us back to the gospels to take a fresh look at how Jesus lived. As users of the social networking websites we need to keep asking ourselves—#What Would Jesus Pin? or Post. It’s a great question. But remember: If you’re not sure what Jesus actually did in his life, then you’re just guessing at what he might do in yours.

We’ve included some of the most compelling photos posted to Godinterest this week.

I love doing these portraits, and our friend suits them perfectly!

Lucky enough to go into the enclosure with Mia, this gorgeous female #cheetah at the WHF Centre in Smarden, Kent

A Chinese paramilitary police recruit being shipped to start his service in the Zhejiang province began to tear up in this photo, taken on Dec. 12, 2010.

Kevin Berthia was talked out of jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge by this police officer in 2005. He has since become an advocate for suicide prevention and has started a family.

We want to hear from you, when you write a message, share a photo, or a video online, do you stop and think about what it says about you as a believer?

  1. I am very grateful to have found your site (although you found me first, which is more than amazing!) I enjoy the articles, photos, and reminder (to all) that God is in every fiber of our being; which includes the words we write and the messages we share. I look forward to sharing this ‘cyber-journey’ with you & the efforts we make to show how God manifests himself in our personal lives everyday…in every way!
    Hugs n’ blessings!

  2. I don’t know. Jesus’s experience of reality was so different. I’m not certain that we would understand his choices. That may be why he didn’t write a Gospel, and so would he Pin anything at all? Somehow, I think that the words of the Apostles are the most powerful possible testimony to all of those effects you list. Kind of, like, “Look at how much he changed me.”

  3. Everything I post or blog or comment on I pray shares with the world, one view at a time, the greatness of our God and the blessings of following Jesus Christ. Wherever we are the light of Christ should be allowed to shine through, and that is my prayer for each day, for what am I? Nothing but a sinner whose sins are paid and redemption is sweet. So much so I wish that all would choose to follow.

  4. I’m sure Jesus would pin something that will draw an unbeliever to Himself to get a closer look at who Jesus really is. I feel I can do this without compromising the Gospel but showing a tangible love at the same time.

    I should pin/post things that will open other people’s understanding about how belonging to Jesus can make lives better in every sense of the word. Love, love and more love!
