Do everything in the name of Jesus


My wife found this on John Piper’s blog about the following verses:

“Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus.” (Colossians 3:17)

“The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!’” (Lk 10:17)

Piper wrote the following:

Do everything with a sense of dependence on the power and authority of the Lord Jesus. Do everything with a view to Jesus being honored in it. Do everything with a view to others being helped by Jesus in it.
Can Jesus be any more pervasive than this in our lives—that we do everything in his name?
