Paul writes in Romans 10v9 “If you confess with your mouth , “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Central to Paul’s gospel message was the recognition that Jesus is Lord. It is to declare that he is the ultimate and supreme authority. Jesus is Lord of every area of creation and one day everyone will bow before him and “confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.” (Philippians 2v11)


Now is the day to make the ultimate Lord my Lord. I honour my Lord, I obey my Lord, I submit to my Lord, I am filled with awe before my Lord. If Jesus is Lord of every area of creation, then as my Lord, he is rightly Lord of every area of my life. His Lordship is not burdensome, but is liberating; it is not restricting, but freeing. To submit to his Lordship is to change from rebellion against the ultimate authority in the universe to alignment with that ultimate authority. May we, today, bow the knee and submit to his Lordship. O what a blessing we will find.


With love and blessing,
