DVD Review: WWJD: What Would Jesus Do?

Based on the Christian novel:

WWJD: What Would Jesus Do focuses on people from a town that act like they have no faith left. Major life circumstances happen to these people who attend the same congregation and they give up on serving God from their hearts. A homeless man asks for help from the members of the congregation at different times and is rejected in many ways.

The scriptural foundation of this movie film for me was 1 Peter 5, which was mentioned throughout the film. John Schneider played the homeless man/prophetic visitor and did an excellent job. The music by Adam Gregory was very touching to me and gets a very important point across about what Jesus would do in the same situations that the congregation members faced.

This is one film that all Jesus-following congregations should benefit from. It really can make people think about why they would want to be a follower of Jesus at all if they don't want to do what Jesus would do. I believe it would be a great film to watch with congregation members of all ages who have not learned how to treat people the way that Jesus would in different situations such as homelessness, sickness, loss, etc. I believe it would also be a great film for people to watch who already understand how to treat people in these ways but need a refresher and want to learn ways to put what have learned into action.
