“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.” Romans 13:14……..
Jesus Christ is Lord. The Lord is God. God almighty. We have no business calling Jesus Christ Lord and not living our lives accordingly. That’s what I did for years. Told people I believed in Jesus Christ as Lord. My life showed the world, and most importantly the Lord, that I hadn’t submitted my life to Him. I called Him Lord. I didn’t act like He is Lord. I acted like I was lord of my own life.
Jesus Christ is Lord. Those of us who call Him Lord, who believe in Him as Lord, need to follow Him as Lord. We need to yield our hearts and lives to Jesus. We need to live for Christ according to God’s ways. We need to study the Bible and live by it. We need to be filled with God’s Spirit and be led by His Spirit. We need to be in fellowship and community with our fellow Christ followers and to be united in Christ.
We need to walk the talk. JESUS CHRIST IS LORD. REAL FAITH in Christ as Lord should be obvious by the words we speak, the decisions we make, the actions we take, and by how we repent when we do wrong while we strive to live right. To live for Christ. Christ who is LORD!
We are not to live according to our fleshly desires, but to deny our selfish wants and live for the Lord! Should we SAY Jesus Christ is LORD? Yes! AND we should live our lives accordingly. For HE IS LORD!
