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

God has given a guiding principle in our lives....Do everything as His representative. "do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus." This covers every area of our daily living; in our homes, our business world, our neighborhoods, wherever we are, whatever we do. "do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus." Don't leave Him out of anything.

When we do it all in His name, representing Him, our desire will be to please Him. "So we make it our goal to please him, whether at home or away" (2 Cor. 5:9). Is this our ambition?

We will do everything for His glory. "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God" (1 Cor. 10:31).Everything in our lives, regardless of how small, ordinary, or insignificant,, should be for His glory. Is this our desire? If it is, all that we do will be with the right motive. Its important to make periodic checks to see if our motives are correct.

I guess sometimes we think if we were taken out of our present environment, it would be easier. But the standard is, "WHATEVER you DO" (and that includes WHEREVER YOU ARE) through His strength and power you can do it ALL in His name. Does it seem like an impossible attainment? It is. We can't do it in our own strength, but through Gods'

"For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose" (Phil. 2:13). Lets allow Him to work so that we can make a difference.

Have a wonderful day. Love mark Phil. 4:11
