“Whatever you do [no matter what it is] in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus [and in dependence on Him], giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (Colossians 3: 17, Amplified Bible)
This is a call to devotion. It is a reminder to thank God and to celebrate our rich relationship with Him. As we go about our days, we can remember the Christ, that true identity that Jesus revealed which means absolute oneness with God.
This conscious dedication in every action and thought to the Lord, is reverence. And it is also aligning ourselves with all that is saving, strengthening, healing, wise, and successful. If our words and deeds are done in the name of God, they are done with Him—with infinite Spirit and with pure Love. This means our work and our interactions are attended naturally by God’s own powerful qualities and can be accomplished with meaning and with effectiveness.
And so, our small tasks and our greater purpose, are all attended by God and at the same time praise Him. When we bring the name, the nature, of God into our thoughts and our actions, we are full of grace and Truth. This brings light to the world and a lightness and joy and contentment to ourselves as well.
