What would Jesus do? is the wrong question


In John’s Gospel Jesus appeared to his disciples where they were hiding in fear and wished them, “Peace”.  He did not tell them: ‘now go do what I have done’; who could manage that?  Rather, Jesus breathed on them and taught them to be guided by the Spirit.  The Way of Jesus does not focus on our being good, nor does it mean relying on our own wisdom and strength.  Rather, Jesus calls us to peace and spiritual wisdom, so that we may learn to live well … The capacity for living well comes from beyond us.
