Do you do everything in God’s name?

Colossians 3:17 (NIV)

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.

Whether life is treating you well, or whether you’re struggling to face each day, we must be sure that we focus our efforts each day on God. God wants us each to do all we can in His name, therefore if we do that there surely is nothing more we can do!

Ever wondered just how much we should thank God for all He provides for us and all He does for us?

Well just last night I found myself considering that question. So what were my conclusions?

My conclusion was that we can never thank God too much for all He has done for us, and all He continues to do for us! Whether we thank God once a week, once a day, or a hundred times a day, it will never be enough to truly thank God for everything.

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks for ever (Psalm 30:11-12 NIV).

For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. (Ephesians 1:15-16 NIV).

So if we can never say thank you enough to God, how do we thank Him?

We serve Him and do His will…that’s all He asks of us!

How Could I Ever Say Thank You by Kathryn Scott
 
How could I ever say thank You
When the whole of this life’s not enough
Though I offer each breath back in worship
It never could match Your great love
So great are Your ways
Such encompassing grace
Love that reaches beyond each defense
Your mercy disarms the most broken of hearts
Such complete and profound faithfulness
How could I thank You
How could I ever repay You
When You laid aside Heaven for me
You came to the earth its Creator
Incarnate to set sinners free
 
I love You Lord
I love You Lord
I love You Lord 
I love you Lord
 

We live in a world full were every time we put on the television or radio, all we hear about is war, famine, murder, homelessness, etc. It’s depressing isn’t it?

We live in a world full of negatives, despair, insanity…we live in a world that doesn’t know God!

Great Is The Darkness That Covers The Earth
Oppression, Injustice And Pain
Nations Are Slipping In Hopeless Despair
Though Many Have Come In Your Name
Watching While Sanity Dies
Touched By The Madness And Lies

Chorus:
Come Lord Jesus, Come Lord Jesus
Pour Out Your Spirit We Pray
Come Lord Jesus, Come Lord Jesus
Pour Out Your Spirit On Us Today

May Now Your Church Rise With Power And Love
This Glorious Gospel Proclaim
In Every Nation Salvation Will Come
To Those Who Believe In Your Name
Help Us Bring Light To This World
That We Might Speed Your Return

Great Celebrations On That Final Day
When Out Of The Heavens You Come
Darkness Will Vanish, All Sorrow Will End
And Rulers Will Bow At Your Throne
Our Great Commission Complete
Then Face To Face We Shall Meet

As Christians it’s our responsibility to help the world find God again.

We must pray for each other; We must pray for our friendships, our families, our neighbours; We must pray for our national and international political leaders; We must pray for our church leaders.

Our world is in darkness, so let all pray and get this world into the light of God’s love!
