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) [#WhateverYouDo #NameOfJesus #ThanksToGod]
12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 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.
Whatever we do, whether in word or deed, we must do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Whatever we do, no matter what it is, in word or deed, we must do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus and in dependence on Him, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear (1 Peter 3:15) [#AlwaysBeReady #GiveADefense #ReasonForHope #MeeknessAndFear]
1 Peter 3:13-17
13 And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? 14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; 16 having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. 17 For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.
In your hearts revere Christ as Lord.
In your hearts set Christ apart as holy—acknowledging Him, giving Him first place in your lives as Lord.
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope and confident assurance elicited by faith that is within you.
But do this with gentleness and respect.
Yet do it with gentleness and respect.
