Today’s thoughts – Do All Things

Picture 001
Good Morning

Happy New Year!
Many make resolutions on the first day of a new year.
Not many find their resolve lasted all year long.

Paul gave us a good advice
on how to make this new year a good year.

Colossians 3:17
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

To “do all things in the name of Jesus” is the lesson of life;
do not be angry with yourselves,
nor despair of every learning it,
because thou art slow to learn the first few syllables.
When thou hast learned to do all things to Jesus,
it will shed pleasure over all the dull things,
softness over all the hard things,
peace over all trial and woe and suspense.
Then will life be glad, when thou livest to Jesus;
and how sweet death, to die in Jesus;
with Him, and to Him, and in Him,
to live for evermore.
~~E. B. Pusey

What hope, by having Christ in mind before the action;
His grace anoints the action to make it ‘abundantly above’
what we could ask or imagine.

Be mindful of Christ . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
