There are many more mundane moments in our lives than magnificent. This week we will take Steven Curtis Chapman’s song, “Do Everything” to point us to the book of Colossians and ponder what it may look like to “do everything as unto the Lord.”
How do you relate to my personal ponderings this week?
On this episode I discuss:
- The story behind the song “Do Everything” by Steven Curtis Chapman – New Release Today Article
- Steven Curtis Chapman’s inspiration verse for this song – 1 Corinthians 10:31
- Why I chose to study the book of Colossians instead
- Unpacking the lyrics of “Do Everything” to discover if you can see yourself in the lyrics, or if they inspire you to evaluate how you “see” life
- Doing everything for the Lord and not for men – Colossians 3:23
- The context of this instruction…it was directed to slaves – Colossians 3:22-24
- Feeling trapped by our commitments (chosen or not)
- Oswald Chambers teaching on the “shallow aspects of life”…what I am calling the mundane moments
- Scripture as the “movie version” of our favorite stories
- Will we be able to appreciate the magnificent moments if we can’t see the value in the mundane?
- The confident hope that we have that brings meaning to the everyday – Colossians 1:4-5
- Recognizing what we learn and how we grow through the mundane moments of life – Colossians 1:9-10
- How these thoughts/teaching extends to what we SAY as well as what we do – Colossians 3:17
