Message of the Day: Every Aspect of Life Is Determined By The Lordship of Christ
“And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (Colossians 3:17, NKJV)
Within the church there are people of various personalities and social backgrounds, but they can all live together in harmony through allowing the peace-loving spirit of Christ to guide their actions. Through teaching and singing they can build one another up in faith. At all times and in all places they should live and act as new people in Christ.
Let our words be right, and our actions upright. We begin with him and end with him; we invoke his name, and pray for his direction and support, in all that we do; and thus every work will be crowned with success. Every aspect of our life must be determined by the lordship of Christ.
All our actions are to be accompanied with thanksgiving. We are to engage in every duty, not only in the name of Christ, but with thankfulness for strength and reason; for the privilege of acting so that we may honor him; and with a grateful remembrance of the mercy of God that gave us such a Saviour to be an example and guide.
