“And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,” Colossians 3:23 NKJV
A literal translation of today’s verse could read: “Do it like your life depends on it.”
In other words, give it everything you’ve got. Don’t just make a living. Make a life. Don’t just earn a paycheck. Go after the passions God has put in your heart. Halfway is no way to live; you’ve got to go all in.
It’s a lust for the God life that doesn’t settle for status quo. It’s an insatiable energy that motivates you to live with Holy boldness.It’s an infectious enthusiasm that can come only from being filled with the Holy Spirit to overflowing.
Jesus may have been meek and mild, but He also had a wild side. He touched lepers, celebrated Samaritans, stopped storms, exorcised demons, ate with sinners, healed on the Sabbath, and turned funeral processions into parades. Then He died the way He lived and the way we should live—with pure passion.
Go ahead— I dare you👊
