Whether you've been a believer for many years .. or just came to know, believe and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior .. there's one crucial thing you must settle in your heart. Many Christians understand that Jesus died on the cross at Calvary for their sins .. But who is He to YOU today?
Scripture tells us that Jesus is the Word made flesh - The Incarnate Son of God - who took upon Himself flesh and blood and entered our world in the form of a servant to all men. He came to walk among us .. and make it possible to know Him. Then after His death, burial, and resurrection, He was exalted back to His rightful place as Lord and Sovereign Ruler .. It's essential that every believer understand the person and position of Jesus Christ.
We often call Him "Lord," but what does that mean?
The answer: Jesus is Lord - He is the Christ, Jesus Christ, is The Way, The Truth, The Life and head of the church. Also called and known as Son of David, Son of God, Son of Man - He Truely is Jesus Christ, the Lord Our God. He was there as The Creator of All .. He made and sustains all things (Col. 1:16-17). And by trusting in the Savior, we accept His rightful place in our life. As Lord, He has authority over every single element of our daily lives. We are His sheep, and who should follow the Shepherd? .. going our own way, we'd fall off the mountain and end up destroyed (John 10:2-15).
Won't you acknowledge that He has the right to determine what you do and where you go today?
You can trust that His way always results in fullness of life. Jesus is not some distant, judgmental ruler; He's your awesome, supportive Lord, who loves you and has gone before you, having lived a human life and suffered unimaginably. So when He says, "Follow Me; I'll make your life count," you can be confident that He is trustworthy every step of the way.
