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 decided that, BRILLIANT. (If not, give it some thought.)
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 bet! To look at the universe and decide Jesus is Lord makes sense; we can see it exhibited in the amazingness of the galaxies. But to tell Him that He can be in charge of us, that we're going to put Him first (even over things we like, or want) starts to cost us something. Choosing to live as a Christian is harder.
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 we 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 to 'crucify' our disagreements with Him. But all of that safe in the knowledge that His will is good for us.
So what now? Take five to chat with God. Are you crucifying your in-built resistance to Him? Is He fully Lord over your life?
