Jesus IS Lord?

'If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.' Romans 10:9 NKJ


There’s no better decision than choosing to believe that God raised Jesus from the dead, and knowing that this resurrection has given you a new life with Him. There’s nothing better than knowing that you believe, and can declare, that Jesus is Lord. If you’ve acknowledged that, BRILLIANT. (If not, give it some thought. Yeah?) Today we’re looking at what Jesus being ‘Lord’ means. Is it believing and declaring that Jesus is ‘Lord’ over all Creation, the universe and beyond? Yessir. Is it believing and declaring that Jesus is ‘Lord’ over your whole life? Yes–indeedy. Is the second one strangely more difficult? You betcha. To look at the universe and conclude Jesus is Lord makes sense; we can see it exhibited in the amazing galaxies. But submitting to Him and recognising He’s in charge, that we have to put Him first, (*even* over things we like, or want) well, that’s going to cost us something (Luke 14:28-32). Becoming a Christian does bring the amazingness of God into our lives, but willing to live the Christian life is much harder (actually it’s impossible… without God – read Mark 10:27). Jesus tells us that part of His rescue of our lives is us mysteriously joining Him in His death—‘crucifying’ our own egos and our own priorities; in fact anything that might challenge Him being Lord of our lives. And a lot in us will tend to rise up and fight this Lord we’ve invited in. It’ll take us purposefully, daily, confessing that Jesus is Lord over us, today, to ‘crucify’ our disagreements with Him. But all of that safe in the knowledge that His will is *good* for our lives, it’s part of our rescue. Take five minutes to chat with God. Are you crucifying your in–built resistance to Him? Is He truly Lord over your life?
