In Jesus’ Name

How different would we be if we did everything in the name of Jesus?

Colossians 3:17

We say we are Christians. We say we follow Jesus. But how much of our actions reflect God? Are the words we speak the words Jesus would say? Is how we act towards others like Jesus?

How much of ourselves would be different if every action of ours would be done in Jesus’ name? We can no longer hurt others with our speech or deeds and say at the same time that we love Jesus. We need to accept the changes in our lives to be a Christian or be honest of not being a true follower.

Let us take up the call to holiness and improve ourselves today. Let us pause before we speak or act and think of Jesus. Let us recall God’s love and mercy towards us first. And then see how that changes our original course of action.

May we begin to forgive more. Love more. When we do things in Jesus’ name we are bringing the divine to the earthly. And in doing so we are having God’s will and kingdom be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
