You Represent Him by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

You Represent Him by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,
do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by
him (Colossians 3:17).

The verse above is quite instructive; it says,
“Whatsoever”; that is, anything you do,
whether in word or deed, it should be in the
Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Why? Because you’re in
Him; you’re born of Him. He said, “I am the vine, ye are
the branches…” (John 15:5). 1 Corinthians 6:17 says,
“But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.” We’re
in an inseparable union with Him. Your conduct,
manner of life, and character should always reflect Him,
because you’re His icon; you represent Him.

Christ should, and must, be seen and heard in
you. Jesus said he that has seen me has seen the Father,
because He epitomized the Father; He was the Father’s
reflection; His glory; the express image of His person
(Hebrews 1:3). Today, you live in the earth, and do
whatever you do as the representative of Jesus; you
function in His Name.

Therefore, live and talk as a God-man. This
consciousness brings a different perspective to your
character. Read our theme verse again: it says live, talk,
conduct your life in the Name of the Lord Jesus! Think
about it: how many hurtful or abusive remarks can
we make in His Name? None! How much untoward
conduct can you display in His Name? None! When
you talk and act in the Name of Jesus, the result is
excellence; He’ll be heard in your speech, and seen in
your actions.

Live every day as a conscious representative of
Jesus Christ. Never forget who you are; don’t take a
holiday from your identity with Him. Let your
Christ-character be consistent wherever you go. When
you’re in church, at home, office, marketplace,
wherever you are, your communication and actions
should be the same—gracious, kind, excellent—in the
Name of the Lord.

CONFESSION:
I’m an ambassador, a conscious representative of
Jesus Christ, living in His Name! My communication
and actions aptly depict my union and oneness with
the Lord. And as God’s Word gets into my spirit, I’m
transformed into the same image, from glory to glory,
by the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!
