It is staggering to think that even the most “good” things we do are tainted by sinful motives and attitudes. There is no doubt that our Christian service, bible memorization, singing, teaching, and so on, are often twisted with wrong motives such as wanting to look good in front of others, to get a large following, to impress a girl, and the list goes on. This does not line up with the biblical picture of how we’re to serve God. According to the Bible, it is the mark of a Christian to do everything for the Lord, to please the Lord, and out of fear of the Lord. This is Paul’s exhortation in Colossians 3. Listen to how much Paul talks about how our lives should please the Lord as Christians.
Vs. 16 – “Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the NAME OF THE LORD JESUS.”
