“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:17 NIV
A rich man appointed a person and authorized him to perform a very important matter. As the representative by his Manager, we should understand that the appointee is expected to manage and complete the job in accordance to the requirements of his Manager. We are the Lord Jesus Christ’s representatives on earth. As such, we act and do things in His name. We are sent and given the authority and power act in His behalf. Our task is to carry on His mission of making disciples of all nations, to seek the lost and save the sinners. To accomplish this great Commission, we are to preach and teach His Gospel and baptize those who believe in His name. When we speak of the Gospel, it is the glory and honor of our Lord Jesus Christ that we proclaim. We are only mere representatives or instruments of Christ to save souls. It is only our Lord God Jesus Christ who has the power to save sinners and no one else. Through the preaching of the Gospel we become co-workers of Christ in establishing His Kingdom in the world. To be good Stewards of the Gospel, we are to propagate His work of salvation its full extent. God entrusted us His Most Holy Name God Jesus Christ. It is His honor and glory that we declare. Therefore, let us all be careful about the way we live and about what we teach. With the power of the Holy Spirit, we should be motivated by Agape Love to Christ, to His church and to all the people in accomplishing this great task. Let everything we do be done in love, true love to God and man as inspired by God’s love for us.
