Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Paul ends chapter 3 in the same way it started, by reminding the people who recieved this letter that everything is about Jesus. We have a tendancy to compartmentalise our lives when it comes to Jesus. A section for Jesus and a section for us. A couple of hours on a sunday and maybe a midweek evening where we're on our best behaviour and the rest doesn't matter so much. We're kidding ourselves if we think that's what life is like as a Christian. It’s all or nothing. Either Jesus is Lord or He isn't.  I can’t be patient at home but angry at work and think it doesn’t matter. I can't talk one way with my church friends and gossip with my non-christian firends and think that pleases God. Our lives are not divided. Jesus is in all of it, at home, at work, at church, at the pub, with family, with friends, with enemies. Whatever we do or say is in the name of Jesus. Any seemingly meaningless task needs to be done as if we are doing it for Jesus, because we are. Every seemingly meaningless conversation needs to be had as if Jesus is right there with you, because He is.
