Colossians 3 verse 17

“And whatever you do in word or deed,do 
all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
(Colossians 3:17)

We are to do “whatever”
In the name of the Lord Jesus

There is NOTHING that we do
That is “outside” of Him

We ARE in Him

I am on holidays
But remain IN Him
Being Christian
Is not a “part time” thing

We are never meant to be “off”
Time to relax and rest
Is always in and through Him

And it doesn’t end there
We are to be continually
Giving thanks to the Father
Through Jesus Christ

This links directly with
1 Corinthians 13
But then this shouldn’t surprise us
As everything and whatever
Has to do with “love”
As it has to do with Him
In Him and through Him

LIFE has changed forever
Jesus does not simply
“FIX us”
To get us through

We have been transformed
NOT transforming…
We ARE a – NEW creation
It IS a “done deal”
And we need to be continually
Reminding ourselves of this FACT

We so easily fall into thinking
That we are a “work in progress”
But that is NOT what the Bible says

Our spirit is identical to Jesus
Our spirit HAS been redeemed

Our mind is being renewed
In order to help assist our body
To be victorious and survive in this life

But both our mind and body
WILL be redeemed

We will HAVE brand new
Immortal bodies
And our mind will be perfect
When we see Him, face to face
