Thought of the Day !!

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

When we do something in God's/Jesus' name, it means that others know what we're doing is because we belong to Him.  Many good deeds are done everyday by people of all faiths and backgrounds.  How will people know that your words and deeds are done in the name of the the Lord Jesus?

One way is to make it known that you are a Christian.  We are not to boast.  But when we're not afraid to bring Jesus into conversations with others, they will begin to get a clue.  When we're given praise, we may give a humble reminder that we would be able to do nothing without our Lord and Savior.

What I get from this scripture is that we should be speaking and doing deeds that are Christlike, but that we should also be letting others know why we do them.

In the love of Christ,
