Doing As Unto The Lord

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.
Perhaps, like me, you have wondered how you are to do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus. Do you pray continuously throughout, or at the beginning, middle, and end of what you are doing? Do you do what you do with the sole intent of producing something specifically for God? Perhaps like me, you analyze this question a bit too much. It seems we often forget that our life in Christ has a lot more to do with being than doing. As we are in Christ, and He in us, it becomes natural for what is in Him to be produced in us. That is to say, that if you commit yourself to being filled with Christ, the things of God, and spending good time with God each day, that which is of Him will naturally become evident in what you do.
