As unto Him

"Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus."
Colossians 3:17

To 'do all things in the name of Jesus' is the lesson of a life; do not be angry with yourselves, nor despair of ever learning it, because thou art slow to learn the first few syllables.

When thou hast learned to do all things to Jesus, it will shed pleasure over all dull things, softness over all trial and woe and suspense. Then will life be glad, when thou livest to Jesus; and how sweet death, to die in Jesus; with Him, and to Him, and in Him, to live forever more.
