“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” – Colossians 3:17 (HCSB)
Recently, the Women’s Missionary Union of West Cleveland Baptist Church gathered in their monthly meeting and packed care packages to send out to the hurricane victims in North Carolina. These ladies will likely never meet anyone that they packed items for, and they will not be the ones that get to place these hygiene items into the hands of a victim, but they do it anyway. Why?
What is it that drives you to be on mission? You can do a lot of great things – but if you do them with an impure heart, you miss the greatest benefit of glorifying God with your actions. As a matter of fact, we are told to do everything in the name of Jesus in Colossians 3:17 – so take opportunities to love others as an opportunity to worship – and give God your very best!
