Whatever You Do

May 5, 2022 Robyn McKelvy

Whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. —Colossians 3:17

When athletes participate in the Olympics, they get the opportunity to represent their countries in a particular event. Just like them, we get the privilege to represent Christ, but not in one specific event. The Lord allows us to represent Him with our whole being. With every word we say, with every deed that we do, we get to show off our Savior.

Colossians 3:17 says that we represent Jesus in “whatever [we] do.” This doesn’t just mean on Sunday or Wednesday night when we’re at church. It means we get to show off the Lord Jesus in everything that we do “in word or deed.” We get to give things to God by what we do and by what we say. This also includes what we type.

What we write and post should bring glory to God. Our words should be a breath of fresh air to everyone who hears them as we represent Jesus to the watching world.

Make it Personal

Do your words, whether at home, work, or online, help to show off your Savior and make others want to follow Him?
