And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. (Colossians 3:17)
Whether we are working, playing or worshipping, all that we do is to be done as unto the Lord. I am not saying that each equates to the other; nevertheless who we are in Christ is to be consistent. I am not to be one person on Sunday and another on Monday. I am not to have one vocabulary in church and another on the golf course. If we call ourselves Christian, then we are to be Christians 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At home, at work and at play: “Let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.”(1) I know and understand that this is often very difficult, especially for a new believer, nevertheless it can be achieved and we must achieve it. For if we fail to live by the same godly rule of conduct, we will inevitably revert to a lower level of morality.
