《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “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.” (Col 3:17)
Meditation one: What is the criterion for Christians’ way of life? It is whatever you do, do it in the name of the Lord. To be in the name of Jesus is to follow His will, to rely on His power, and to do things for His glory. Since our prayer is in the name of Jesus Christ, are our deeds in consistent with God’s will, encouraging people as well as glorifying God?
Meditation two: Have you already been a reborn and saved Christian? Have your words, actions, and attitudes revealed the life of Christ with fullness of joy? Without Christ, life cannot bear witness; if Christians’ lives cannot bear witness, they indeed have disgraced the name of the Lord.
Prayer: Oh Lord, before I say “Amen” in my prayer, ask You today to have oversight of what I have said, or done, or thought, or demanded, to see if I have misused or disgraced Your name. Please guide me, so I can live in Your light and walk in Your will. I pray in the holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
