All of It?
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus...
Imagine what it would be like to go through the day announcing “In the name of the Lord Jesus” before you did anything or after you said anything! It would certainly be a little awkward, to say the least, but it wouldn’t take long to see just how many of your words and deeds made you feel uncomfortable when adding Jesus’ name to the mix.
“In the name of the Lord Jesus I’m going to tease you now.”
“In the name of the Lord Jesus I’m about to disobey you.”
“You’re a loser…in the name of the Lord Jesus!”
“Get your own glass…in the name of the Lord Jesus!”
“I’m not apologizing to you…in the name of the Lord Jesus.”
See what I mean? If we can’t do it or say it in the Lord’s name, then don’t!
APPLICATION: Think of some of the sinful things you say and do within your family and then try adding “in the name of the Lord Jesus” to the description. Next, try to think of some things to say and do within your family that will feel good when you add “in the name of the Lord Jesus.” Finally, pray and ask God for the strength to apply this simple principle in your life.
