Have you ever gotten your car stuck in the mud or needed some help getting some work done before a deadline? And then help comes along and pulls you out or helps you out and the typical response is “Thanks, I got it from here.”
Do we do that to Jesus? – “Thanks for saving me Jesus. I got from here.”
We readily accept Jesus as our Savior, but do we acknowledge Him as our Lord as well?
The book of 2 Peter is very short, only 3 small chapters. Yet Peter refers to Christ as ‘Lord and Savior’ four times. Peter, who stood in Jesus presence, understood that you can’t have one without the other.
“What must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” (Acts 16:30-31)
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
Christ is not just our Savior. In fact, He can’t be our Savior unless He is also our Lord.
Take some time and think about what Jesus’ Lordship means in your life.
