17-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.
Notes verse 17 — Whatever you do. These Words of Christ are extremely powerful. He is telling us no matter what we do or say, we need to do so In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. When you go to work, do it in the name of Christ Jesus. When you go to school, do it in the name of Christ Jesus. When you eat, sing, talk, walk, read, study, or even sleep, do it in the name of Christ Jesus. Throughout all of this we are to give thanks to God the Father through His Son Jesus. So I ask you, what will you give thanks for today?
