WHATEVER! Colossians 3:17

3:17 WHATEVER! CLICK or COPY & PASTE.... Greetings! Blogfam WHATEVER!!! And whatever ye do... This is how Colossians 3:17 opens. In this context, the appropriate definition of the word is: "Anything that... No matter what." Thus our verse could open like this... Colossians 3:17 NIV And anything that you do..... Or no matter what 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. WHATEVER in this context does not exclude any form of our behavior as servants of the Most High. In anything and no matter what our lifestyle must bring glory to the Almighty. The truth is that we really do not want to be on top of our Christian game all the least that is true for some of us. Some of my Blogfam would choose to lay their religion down in order to satisfy their own personal agenda which has in no way been ratified by the Holy Spirit. It just feels like the right or the easiest or the most convenient behavior to engage at the time. Yet this verse eradicates the promotion of One's own personal agenda in order to establish the priority of God's word, God's will, and God's way in our lives. And WHATEVER makes it clear to all of us that nothing in our lives, in word or deed, is exempt from being done in the name of Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, a reality that we often face is the wavering witness of those of us who choose to go with a different definition of the word WHATEVER. For WHATEVER is also "Used to indicate Indifference to a state of affairs, situation, previous statement." It is a word that I know I have used when something just did not matter to me and when I have no interest in what is being read or said or done. Its just WHATEVER! WHATEVER is a clear expression to others that IT is unimportant, irrelevant, and a clue that IT is so not worth my time or attention or energy. It is WHATEVER! Have you ever used this word in this way? Have you ever heard anyone use this word in this way? How did it make you feel when you said it or when you heard it? WHATEVER! Blogfam, you know I like to keep it real in this space and during our time together so let me just say it... When it comes to the words and deeds of some of my sistas and brothas in Christ, far too many of us have a WHATEVER attitude!!! We intentionally seek to convey a message with our attitudes and our actions to indicate Indifference to a state of affairs, situation, or previous statement. Its the truth. We might as well all face it because at some point we have all said WHATEVER! AND we have all said so as it specifically relates to our words and deeds on behalf of the Kingdom of God. We have all been indifferent to the priority of our Creator's agenda for a countless number of reasons that seemed to be the best reason we could offer at the time when doing what was right in the name of Jesus was just WHATEVER! Friends, on today I invite you to eliminate your indifference toward Kingdom principles and priorities and in anything you do, no matter that you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of Jesus Christ. I am so glad that our God has not taken on a WHATEVER ATTITUDE with us. I am ecstatic that our God is not indifferent in His love, grace, mercy, forgiveness, favor, patience, purpose, and goodness toward us! HALLELUJAH! can you imagine if Jesus had said WHATEVER before He took his last breath to die for our sins? Blogfam, When we say or do WHATEVER in order to indicate our Indifference to a state of affairs, situation, or doprevious statements regarding God's word, God's will, or God's way, we are being disobedient and we are denying opportunities for the light of Christ to shine brightly through us. Everytime we say WHATEVER we tone it down and we can tone it down until we turn it off and truly see that our WHATEVER gets us no where in the advancement of the Kingdom of God. So Blogfam, on today I simply pray that you would appreciate the content of this verse and that you would decide that you would faithfully live accordingly. And WHATEVER...anything that you do..... Or no matter what 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. PS... I am still blogging on the go...
