Do it as Jesus would do it!
(J.R. Miller, "Evening Thoughts" 1907)
"Whatever you do, whether in word or deed--do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus." Colossians
To do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, is to do it as Jesus would do it, if He were in your place. One may do the lowliest things in a heavenly way--and another may do heavenly things in a worldly way. One may work in the humblest calling--and live a saintly life; while another may be engaged in what is called a sacred calling--and yet may do his work in an undevout manner. A street-sweeper may be more saintly, may live nearer to God, and may be a better follower of Jesus--than a minister who is busy in incessant religious duties.
Browning represents the angel Gabriel taking a boy's tasks in this world, doing the work well, and praising God meanwhile.
We have something finer even than that, however, not in a mere poet's imagination--but in the gospel narrative. Jesus, the son of God, came to earth, lived a human life, and worked at a common trade!
"Yes, yes, a carpenter--same trade as mine,
It warms my heart as I read that line.
I can stand the hard work, I can stand the poor pay,
For I'll see that Carpenter at no distant day!"
"I have set you an example that you should do as I have done." John 13:15
"Leaving you an example, that you should follow in His steps!" 1 Peter 2:21
