A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.”
We are called Christians, after Christ — it is His name that we bear. The "name which is above every name," the name at which every knee shall bow — that is the name which we bear. How high an honor! How great a responsibility! We should never forget our name. We should strive to adorn it in all things, and earnestly desire never to do anything inconsistent with it. Oh, how different would our daily life be — were this simple rule closely, strictly, watchfully obeyed! How many deeds would be left undone! How many words would remain unspoken!
Christian! Your trials, crosses, and conflicts are all temporary.
