Thought of the Day January 25, 2017

"Let everything whatsoever  that you do, whether in word or in deed, be done all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God the Father through him." (St Paul, Colossians 3:17) If we want to see the difference in Paul's life before and after his conversion, this statement gives us a glimpse. Before, he was zealot for the Law of God; afterwards, he was zealot for the Lord of Lords, Jesus. What would happen if we would make the above statement  our rule of life? It would change our language to one of love. It would impact our actions and our relationships. Making Jesus the center of our lives will bring order, peace and joy into our hearts. There will be many challenges because of the Law  of sin within us doesn't want to yield control of our life to anyone. Yet, the more Jesus is the reason we choose to act, the less hold sin will have over us.
