Today’s verse

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

Today’s reading
Colossians 3

Colossians 3:1-5 NLT
[1] Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. [2] Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. [3] For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. [4] And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory. [5] So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don’t be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.

Today’s devotion
Jesus Calling

I AM WITH YOU AND FOR YOU, your constant Companion and Provider. The question is whether you are with Me and for Me. Though I never leave you, you can essentially “leave” Me by ignoring Me: thinking or acting as if I am not with you. When you feel distance in our relationship, you know where the problem lies. My Love for you is constant; I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. It is you who change like shifting sand, letting circumstances toss you this way and that.

When you feel far from Me, whisper My Name. This simple act, done in childlike faith, opens your heart to My Presence. Speak to Me in love-tones; prepare to receive My Love, which flows eternally from the cross. I am delighted when you open yourself to My loving Presence.

“I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
—Genesis 28:15

What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
—Romans 8:31

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
—Hebrews 13:8

Today’s worship song
Turn You Eyes Upon Jesus
Michael W. Smith

Today’s prayer
Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Lord, Savior and Truth. As one of my favorite verses states today ‘whatever (I) you do in word or deed, (I) do all in (Your name) the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.’ For the fight to focus on You is won in the little things we do each day. Just as busyness can separate us from You, so can the mundane and boredom of the our routines. So I am constantly crying out Your name ‘Jesus’ to bring You into the conscious moment with me. Whether anger, impure thoughts or selfishness, I try to turn to You to rescue me from myself and the ways under the sun. Help Jesus! I love You, I’m sorry, forgive me, thank You. Amen
