Who Is Your Lord?
As you start this new year, you are probably signing up for various forms of life transformation such as exercise, Bible reading plans, diets, prayer, etc. One of the keys to life transformation is relationships. The most important one is your relationship with "lords" in your life in comparison to THE LORD of your life.
The dictionary defines "lord" as: one having power and authority over others; ruler by hereditary right or preeminence to whom service and obedience is due. With that definition, who or what gets our service and obedience? What do we give preeminence to in our thoughts, heart, actions? Who has power and authority over our lives?
That rightful place belongs to Jesus. He is not someone or a "god" for us to use in our life as just as one of the "lords" in our life. He desires to be THE LORD of your life. That is how much He loves you and wants to have a relationship with you. Jesus keeps it simple by just wanting time with you. Establish times of prayer and devotion to Him at the very start of this new year. Jesus loves us sincerely to the point where He will tell us the truth about our life yet provide hope for a better way and a brighter future. That simplicity and sincerity leads into His supremacy. The Bible states that Jesus is supreme from the beginning to the end. This powerful Savior, Healer, Provider, Redeemer, Friend, Brother, and King is available to you. He will not force Himself on you but He knocks on the door of your heart and hopes to be invited into your life.
Give Him the rightful place of being number ONE in your life as the ONE LORD of your life! I believe if we can keep Him as our ONE LORD, He can do whatever He wants for us and through our lives to be a blessing to others and to His Kingdom!
Enjoy The Ride,
