GOD’S WORD FOR JULY 5

GOD’S WORD FOR JULY 5

Colossians 3:17 (Amp)

 “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” As Christians, we are living for Christ in all things. This means literally ALL things. When the Word says things like “whatever you do”, it doesn’t leave any room for exceptions, like we do when we speak. God says what He means, and means what He says. So, whatever we do, even small, tedious jobs, we are commanded to do in dependence on Jesus, knowing He is our life, light, and Lord., and do them thankfully. This is the same mindset as what Paul, through the Holy Spirit, says in Colossians 3:23-24 (Amp) “ Whatever you do [whatever your task may be], work from the soul [that is, put in your very best effort], as [something done] for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing [with all certainty] that it is from the Lord [not from men] that you will receive the inheritance which is your [greatest] reward. It is the Lord Christ whom you [actually] serve.”

Thank You, Lord, that You remind us of these things to keep connected to You, and to glorify You for Your Presence in even the menial tasks of our lives. We are never to work to please men, but only You. Please continue to remind us. In Your wonderful name, we ask these things. Amen

NOTE to reader: If you’re not sure how to be saved, and receive the promises in the Bible, feel free to message me, or talk to another true born again Christian. Jesus died for each of us. No one is excluded, no one is “too far gone”. He came to seek those who are lost, and, although He is fully God, He became man to suffer and die for YOU. But you need to accept this free gift. You can start by reading the gospel of John, and the epistles (Especially Romans, Corinthians, Ephesians, and Colossians) Go to Him sincerely, He WILL show you the Truth!!
