(Declare Jesus Christ As The Lord Of Your Life)
TO THE BIBLE: Philippians 2:9-11 CEV
“Then God gave Christ the highest place and honored his name above all others. So at the name of Jesus everyone will bow down, those in heaven, on earth, and under the earth And to the glory of God the Father everyone will openly agree, “Jesus Christ is Lord!”
A young man once boarded a train, and on his way, his cabin mates asked him to join them in a game, but he replied, “I’m sorry, I didn’t come with my hands.”
“What do you mean?” they asked perplexed because they could see his hands on either side of his body.
“These hands that you see aren’t mine; they belong to my Master, Jesus Christ, and I only use them to do what He commands me to do,” the man explained. He went further to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them, and they were gloriously saved!
When we say, “Jesus is Lord,” it’s much more than a religious expression; it means He’s One with supreme authority. He’s Master and Ruler; He’s the One to be reverenced and adored! That’s what “Lord” means.
Some have only been acquainted with Him as Saviour, but He’s more than a Saviour. He’s the One that has the pre-eminence and to whom service and obedience are due.
You must know Jesus in this light and walk in this consciousness every day. In your family, academics, finances and everything that has to do with your life, relate to Him as Lord!
In other words, let Him have supremacy and ascendancy. Let Him have the final say in all that concerns you. Remember, He’s the only wise God; therefore, submit to the supremacy of His will, counsel and wisdom.
And if you haven’t yet made Jesus the Lord of your life, say this prayer and mean it with all your heart:
“O Lord God, I believe with all my heart in Jesus Christ, Son of the living God. I believe He died for me and God raised Him from the dead. I confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord of my life. Through Him and in His Name, I have eternal life; I’m born again. Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul! I’m now a child of God. Hallelujah!”
1 Timothy 6:15-16; Acts 10:36
Lord Jesus, I recognise you as my Lord, Master and Ruler, the One to whom I belong and that has the final say in my life. I believe with all my heart and declare with my mouth that you’re Lord over everything in heaven, in the earth, and under the earth. I walk in the consciousness and revelation of your greatness, dominion and lordship today. Amen.
