Is the saying "Jesus is Lord" just a Christian slogan, or is there greater meaning to that phrase?
“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
Today’s newsletter features an article by Rob Board entitled DOES “JESUS IS LORD” REALLY MEAN WHAT IT SAYS? Rob writes:
“In our Western culture, we do not want anyone to Lord it over us. After all, we are free and independent people. We most prefer Jesus to be our Savior because that appeals to us -- to be saved from the consequences of our sins -- it is very humanistic. What is really difficult is to say that Jesus is Lord in our lives and really mean it and live it. Not just say it as a Christian slogan.”
"That if you confess with your mouth JESUS AS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved ". Romans 10:9
According to this scripture salvation requires two parts:
1) Say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord -- YOUR LORD
2) Believe that God raised Him from the dead -- THAT JESUS IS ALIVE TODAY
WHO DO YOU SAY THAT JESUS IS? This question gives us great insight into your own relationship with Jesus.
1) Do you call Him Lord in your own life? If so, what are the implications of the confession that Jesus is Lord for your company?
2) Have you bowed your knee to Him and submitted your life and company to Him as Lord, or Master and Supreme Ruler, of your life?
3) Do you acknowledge Him as the CREATOR of all things?
"Jesus was commissioned by the Father to come to earth, destroy the works of the Devil, and restore that which was lost. Jesus OBEYED everything the Father told Him to do. When Jesus left the earth He gave His followers the same commission He had received from the Father - Go reconcile the human family to the Father, destroy the works of the Devil, and restore that which was lost. Proclaiming Jesus as Lord means we are to OBEY what He commands us to do. You are not saved to go to heaven: You are saved to bring heaven to the earth."
