As our church celebrated Easter Lunch around a lovely meal at a lovely setting; my daughter-in-law, Tammy, asked; “What would Jesus Text?”

I have been giving this some thought! What would ‘Jesus Text’ to each of us on our individual phone?


  1. 1

    I came up with a lot of things I’d rather not share, because Jesus cuts to the inner core of us, but one of them would be, “U were just as lost 1ce,” because I’m falling into a habit of judging non-believers and not understanding why they just can’t accept the truth and be free. But all those other texts I’d rather not share… are because I’m not accepting His truth and being free.

    I may need to think on this one! Tammy sure has a good question!

  3. 4
    tholton Says:

    By the way, I did ask my sons, and one said, “probably something like this…’r u doing what is right?'” My other son wasn’t sure what God might text.

    mgsong Says:

    I, too, thought Tammy’s idea was very provocative. And I like what one of the twins said…”Are you doing the right thing?” Yah! That’s a good one.
    But adoptingjames may have hit the nail on the head as some of us struggle with thoughts that might border on judgmentalism, etc. forgetting the miry clay from which HE pulled us up and out! And not just judging non-believers but sometimes our brothers and sisters in Christ.
    Excuse me! Loud beep!!!

    Sara Says:

    I appreciate you because you work to communicate with yourself, Me and others.

  6. 7
    Debi Says:

    He might text me to say “R u listning to what I’m saying?”

  7. 8
    mgsong Says:

    Or maybe, “You tried that last time and it still doesn’t work. How about doing it MY WAY?”

  8. 9
    tholton Says:

    “keep ur focus on Me” “I have the answers”

      Sara Says:

      “keep ur focus on Me” “I have the answers” says, tholton…and He gives me the answer to go do and I do nothing, Where will my focus be or where has it been?

  9. 11
    Debi Says:

    If I have an “answer to go do and I do nothing”,…I would say I have ignored His request, been disobedient and my focus has been on something other than Him, so I must have an idol I am focusing on.

      Sara Says:

      “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” Mark16:15 Wonder if this message was given to eleven people (vs. 14) and then a stop? Wonder if it does mean go and do for all believers? I am afraid to research how many ‘do’s’ I might find if I read the Word of God.

      • 13
        Debi Says:

        If this message stopped at the eleven, then I guess we Bible readers could pick and choose which other messages Jesus limited to just His immediate group of disciples. Must be a ‘do’ for all who say they are disciples.

      Looks like you “hit the nail on the head”, Debi.

  10. 15
    Sara Says:

    As I think more on WWJT I remind myself He has a book full of messages for me and others….example; “His mercies are new every morning.” Did I text that to anyone today? Lamentations 3:22-23

    Maybe my texts are his messages. More like maybe they should be full of compassion, encouragement, answers, and help.

    It might red letter me to pray for the Christians in Iran…12 Christians in Iran await verdicts after Easter Sunday apostasy trial

      May the Lord help, strengthen, deliver and protect these Christians and all the Iranian Christians at this time and in the days to come.

    What great faith has Mr. Nadarkhani that he will not recant even facing torture. and death!! Yes, we should pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ. But do we think of it often? We might if we would ask Jesus to text us His message on the “smart phone scrreens” of our hearts.
    This morning I asked Jesus what He wanted me to pray and Holy Spirit moved upon me to pray for Indonesia.
    “The first quake, whose magnitude was measured at 8.6
    by the United States Geological Survey, was centered about 200 miles offshore and was felt across a large area. Tremors were felt in Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand as well as Indonesia.” [N Y Times]
    The Holy Spirit moves across the globe as well as dwelling in our hearts. The Lord’s Rhema and His Logos are all the messages we need to direct us in what the Lord would have us to do, each day.

    Sara Says:

    Did anyone else read adoptingjames post on “Eternal ‘me time?” Well, the ‘me time’ is embedded in his article. I thought most interesting.

      tholton Says:

      Yes, I did. “But we do have a choice as to what we will worship”.

      • 21
        Debi Says:

        And from reading the article I gathered that if we don’t want to follow the rules of the Creator, then we won’t make a choice to worship Him…it would be me, family, etc.

  13. 22
    Sara Says:

    Maybe the Bible could be called the original text!

  14. 25
    mgsong Says:

    “Worshiping” in our clothes closets, or at the movie houses or the local bar scene or cafes ad infinitum worshiping our children or our grandchildren..The Bible calls these something like this.. “ashteroths, every green tree on the hill, totems, and
    they have no eternal reward whatsoever. The only worship that comes with an eternal reward (ad infinitum) that can never fade away is the worship of and obedience to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God and Jehovah God Himself Who died on the cross for my sins.

      Debi Says:

      It is interesting that Sarah Young’s daily devotional which many read is titled, Jesus Calling’. Today He ‘calls’ to say…”I designed you to depend on Me moment by moment, recognizing that ‘apart from Me you can do nothing’. The creature,
      dependent upon the original design Creator, will score a ‘0’ with Him unless we assume the proper role and understanding of our relationship.

    Jesus may text: See your busy, please call!

    mgsong Says:

    I believe God’s greatest TEXT MESSAGE is the TEXT of the Scriptures.

  17. 29
    rko777 Says:

    Jesus may text: Hey one day at a time with Me leads to Peace!
    or Stop the mind ferris wheel and lean on Me!
    or I miss you, where are you?
