It was quite the catch-phrase in its heyday. “What would Jesus do?” appeared everywhere – wristbands, coffee cups, t-shirts, tchotchkes, and more. It was supposed to remind people of faith (or so the story went) to ask themselves what Jesus would do in any given situation and do that, rather than what the person would do.
Michael Boggs is a Dove-award-winning contemporary Christian musician formerly of FFH. He told Feed the Children it was in a conversation with a friend that he realized it. “What would Jesus do” does not get all the way into the heart of how Christians ought to look at the world and live their lives. He asked himself, “What would Jesus UNdo?” That question forced him to confront the pain and brokenness in the world – things like hunger, poverty, abuse, disease, and hopelessness. Michael says he believes that Jesus came to undo them. But not only that, he also believes that Jesus calls his followers to join him in the undoing. This is the inspiration for Boggs’ newest single by the same name: “What Would Jesus Undo?” In collaboration with Feed the Children, he is offering FREE downloads of the single for a limited time.
