What If ... (Colossians 3:17)

Today's scripture: Colossians 3:17

This verse is one that all believers should memorize. Seriously.

We should be living for Christ. We should be dedicating ourselves every day to Him and His will. Our work. Our play. Our relationships. Our words. Our actions. Our thoughts. All should be done in the name of our Lord Jesus.

The Message paraphrases Paul's words, "Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way." Every detail. Every moment.

What would our lives be like if we really lived this way? If we really did and said everything in Christ's name?

Before we spoke, we'd ask ourselves: Does what I'm going to say glorify God? Before we acted, we'd ask ourselves: Will what I'm going to do edify myself and others?

What if we spent each moment seeking how we could honor the name of our Lord. What if we spent each moment giving thanks for God's abundant blessings.

What if.
