Our Lord

“Our Lord.”  What beautiful words these are!  What great comfort and assurance they bring.

I am speaking of the fact that these words convey what we human beings have in common.  We all have the same Lord – Jesus Christ.  No truth could be more fundamental to our existence…or to our hope for the future.

Acceptance of this one truth, assuming we conformed our behavior to this belief, would change the world in astounding and uncountable ways.  Think of it:  Our Lord.

We are all under authority: His.  There are none of us who are not under His authority.

He will make all wrongs right and redress all grievances: some in this life, and the rest in the life to come.

The human race is one family with one Lord.  Our Lord.

Woe to those who try to live out from under our Lord’s authority, for it cannot be done.  (Such people bring destruction on themselves, and we have often been those people.)

Woe to those who say others are outside our Lord’s authority, for it cannot be so.  (That is, don’t be Holier Than Thou for all human beings are the people of God.)

Blessed be the name of our Lord!

  1. “Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Rom 5:1)
    Who else could give us peace than ‘Our Lord’? Nobody else “for he himself is our peace.” (Eph 2:14) Finally, it’s perfect having found a sacred place for an empty heart, which needs something to deeply and thoroughly soothe the troubled soul (or better Someone than something).

  2. ‘“Our Lord.” What beautiful words these are!’

    So true, Mike. We’re going to make it through whatever comes our way because He is worth the wait! And here’s only one reason why our Lord Jesus Christ is worth it all.

    Let’s just take a short glance at The Word’s – Jesus’ – beauty.

    “His eyes are darker than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.“ (Gen 49:12)

    “She: Behold, you are beautiful, my beloved, truly delightful.” (Sg 1:16)

    “She: As an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.“ (Sg 2:3)

    “My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.“ (Sg 2:9)

    “She: My beloved is radiant and ruddy, distinguished among ten thousand. His head is the finest gold; his locks are wavy, black as a raven. His eyes are like doves beside streams of water, bathed in milk, sitting beside a full pool. His cheeks are like beds of spices, mounds of sweet-smelling herbs. His lips are lilies, dripping liquid myrrh. His arms are rods of gold, set with jewels. His body is polished ivory, bedecked with sapphires. His legs are alabaster columns, set on bases of gold. His appearance is like Lebanon, choice as the cedars. His mouth is most sweet, and he is altogether desirable. This is my beloved and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.“ (Sg 5:10-16)

    “…and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.“ (Rev 1:13-16)
