3:17 DO IT AGAIN!!! Colossians 3:17

3:17 Do it AGAIN!!! CLICK or COPY & PASTE to LISTEN NOW: Greetings! Blogfam, In our previous post, I asked you the question...What are YOU doing? And I suggested that our best response to that question is the sentiment expressed in our theme verse for this series... Colossians 3:17 NIV 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. On today, I am not simply asking you to respond to the question - What are YOU doing? Today I am admonishing you to DO IT AGAIN!!! And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus... AGAIN & AGAIN!!! Im sure you have heard the expression that: Foolishness is when you do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. This is not an overly difficult concept to grasp. For, in essence, it is challenging one to DO something different in order to get different results; to adjust one's expectations and process toward achieving such expectations when whatever is being done is not working. This popular sentiment encourages us to STOP doing what we are doing because to continue to do the same thing would be foolishness! So how does this work when we apply this popular sentiment with the activity we do on behalf of the Kingdom of God? I ask this question because there will be so many words we will use and deeds we will complete in the name of Jesus Christ but the desired results will not meet our personal expectations. When we do the right things, say the right things, or go the right places, we expect to see good and favorable results. When we do our best to DO and SAY the right things that would be pleasing to God, we do not want to feel like fools or appear as if we are choosing to be foolish because we keep on doing the same thing. Friends, this can be a hard place to be for people of faith. When we walk by faith and not by sight, as often and as much as we might do or say the right things, the end result or the consequences of walking by faith may not lead to the results or consequences that we might expect and when we continue to DO the same things over and over again, the repetition can make us look foolish.... Especially when we make the same right choices over and over in the name of Jesus. This is a hard place to be. It is hard and often discouraging to pray and praise and worship and give and sacrifice and serve and fellowship and go to church and go to bible study and go to Sunday School and participate in Small Groups and to obey the Scripture.....AGAIN and AGAIN when you are not getting the results you expected to get. It is hard to... (Colossians 3:5, 8-10, 12-17 NIV) Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry - AGAIN. It is hard to now also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips - AGAIN. It is hard not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator - AGAIN. It is hard to therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone - AGAIN. It is hard to Forgive as the Lord forgave you - AGAIN and AGAIN. It is hard and just seems downright foolish to AGAIN and AGAIN to over all these virtues put on love, which binds us all together in perfect unity.....To Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful..... To Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts - AGAIN and AGAIN. Blogfam, It is hard AND we might look and sound foolish but we MUST resolve and commit ourselves to DO IT ALL AGAIN!!! 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 AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN. PS... I am still blogging on the go... More details in due season... Thanks for your patience!!! God loves You and I do Too!!!
