HOW IMPORTANT IS THAT?
HOW IMPORTANT IS THAT? God’s Word says that everything we do in life is important. That’s right, every thing! We may not understand the importance of what we say or do but God says, “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). Whether we are relaxing or working, playing with children, cooking, cleaning, studying, worshipping, taking care of those in need, teaching, preaching, writing or scrubbing toilets...WHATEVER...it is important. WHY? Because we do it in the name of Jesus: by His authority, representing Him, and honoring Him. When we represent the Lord of Lords and King of Kings it is important. What we do or say should be the very best and all our being should concentrated on honoring Him. If we don’t honor and represent Jesus well in the little and mundane things how will we represent Him well in the big things? And while we are “saying and doing” it should be done with a thankful heart; thanking the Father through Jesus the Son who enables us to do all things. Remember that there are people who would love to do what God has called you to do or say but are unable because of their circumstances in life at this point. Be thankful in all things that God allows you to do.
