Whatever We Say or Do

Col 3:17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

That’s a tall order.  Whatever we do, whether it is a spoke word or an action, is to be don in the mane of Jesus and with a thankful heart.  I must confess I am not there.  There are chores I must do that sometimes I grumble about.  It is a learning process to remember to thank God for everything we are able to do and for everything we say.  It is a learning process to really realize God not only sees everything we do, he hears everything we say even when it is still only a thought in our minds.  Praise God I am renewed every morning with His Holy Spirit and forgiven many times through the day as I confess my sinful failures of commission and omission to Him.  I’ve come a long way but still have a long way to go before I carry out this command – whatever I do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Jesus).  How about you?
