What Does “WWJD?” Mean To You?
In honor of the release of our new WWJD Corduroy Hat...
We asked the members of the Elevated Faith team what “WWJD?” means to them personally. Here’s what they said:
DARCI (EF Creative Director):
"What would Jesus do?" - not just because we should be representative of Him in and to this world, but also because He will return, and it is our greatest pursuit to be a good and faithful servant of Christ. In this world but not of it ✨
"Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world."
1 John 4:17
JOSH (EF Founder):
My WWJD bracelet is a constant reminder to love unconditionally as Jesus loves us, despite my circumstances.
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”
JONATHAN (EF Customer Service Manager):
WWJD is a reminder to me to offer the fruit of His love to the world in every interaction I have.
“Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear
fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me."
CAROLINE (EF Director of Influencer Relations):
WWJD is an everyday reminder for me to consider my thoughts and actions in a way that glorifies Jesus’ love for us. I’m often reminded of His gift of Peace. Jesus calls us to find comfort in Him and the kingdom of God, not in the world.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
MEGAN (EF Director of Product Design & Development):
WWJD is a mindset I try to follow when faced with everyday trials, big and small. When I stop and ask myself, "What would Jesus do?" It's a reminder to live by humility, patience, and a strong faith that everything will work itself out for the good.
"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."
KIARA (EF Graphic Designer):
WWJD is a reminder to live life in full pursuit of God. To walk with the same courage, boldness, compassion and selfless love as Jesus did.
“Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked."
1 John 2:6
CRYSTAL (EF Graphic Designer):
WWJD is a reminder to constantly show love, grace, and forgiveness towards others even in tough moments. It's a beautiful symbol of how Jesus does it for us time and time again. We should treat people the way that Christ treats us.
"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
BETHANY (EF Digital Marketing Manager):
WWJD is a precious phrase so many of us grew up hearing. As I have gotten older, the meaning grows sweeter. "What would Jesus do?" asks the question we can apply to each action of our life. Jesus would love, He would encourage, He would be patient, He would be there for a friend (and even an enemy), and He would choose the high road in any situation. It's an encouragement and an opportunity to live like He would.
“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love;
just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love."
CARLY (EF Community Manager):
For me, it’s both “what would Jesus do?” and “what Jesus did” that changes everything. When I fully walk in the revelation of what Jesus did for me, it changes how I am able to respond to others and be more like Him. It’s a heart posture
“Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.”
Your turn, what does “WWJD?” mean to you?
We would so love to read your response and hear your heart in the comments 💙
