We don’t often hear the word “lord” applied to people in our culture. Still, we know what the word means. What therefore would be the point in calling Jesus Christ your Lord if you are not going to obey Him? Obeying is the whole point of having a lord, isn’t it?
Is Jesus your Lord? If so, is this lip service on your part – or do you actually do the things that He says?
Do you know what Jesus wants from you? Surely, you do! He wants you to love Him and love others. You could even say He wants you to love Him by loving others. Another way to say it is that He wants you to imitate Him. He left you an example to follow in His steps. In other words, He practiced what He preaches. He kept His own commandments. Therefore, He can either say, “Do as I say,” or “Do as I do,” and either way it will amount to the same thing.
If Jesus is truly your Lord, you will not have to tell other people that you’re submitted to Him. They will know about it soon enough.
Determine today that you will no longer offer the Lord Jesus Christ pointless lip service. From now on you will only render the real thing.
