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
If I do and say all things in Jesus’ name then I would put greater thought in my words and deeds. Touch my heart Father to do exactly that, and walking the walk, I can be more like Jesus as I give thanks to You. Amen.
I could be wrong, but I think we would use considerably less profanity, do less vulgar things, be less cruel and disrespectful, and live a more loving life, if we did and said everything in the name of Jesus Christ and giving thanks to God through Jesus.
I know that when I’m around my grandmothers, in church, and around children and senior citizens, I am extremely careful and considerate of what I do and say. Imagine how reserved I would be if I did and said everything in the name of Jesus. Wowsers!
