Do All Work in Jesus’ Name
John 1:12; Acts 3:16; 4:10; Romans 14:6; Colossians 3:16–17
Do you eat? Give thanks to God both before and afterwards. Do you sleep? Give thanks to God both before and afterwards. Do you launch into the marketplace? Do the same—nothing worldly, nothing of this life. Do all in the Name of the Lord, and all will be prospered to you. On wherever the Name is placed, there all things are auspicious. If it casts out devils, if it drives away diseases, much more does it render business easy.

Follow Christ’s Example Regardless of Consequences
1 Corinthians 11:1; 1 Peter 2:21
If Jesus’ example is the example for the world to follow, it certainly must be feasible to follow it. But we need to remember this great fact. After we have asked the Spirit to tell us what Jesus would do and have received an answer to it, we are to act regardless of the results to ourselves.
