Whatever You Do

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

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.
(Col 3:23-24 ESV)

Whatever you do, do it for Jesus. We should devote all of our actions to Him. If we go to work, we should work for Him. If we brush our teeth, we should brush them for Him. If we fellowship with one another, we should love each other for Him.

We should not live our lives for Jesus out of guilt or a sense of duty, but out of joy. Doing everything for Jesus should be the natural outflow of our love for Him. As we walk in His presence, He will be increasingly on our minds. The more we speak to Him and delight in him, the more we will remember Him. His Spirit will always ensure that our minds are drawn back to Him. Soon it will be natural to devote everything we do to Him.

We can dedicate all of our actions to Him, letting our lives be a pleasing sacrifice to Him.
