JESUS CHRIST IS MY LORD
Memorize: Philippians 2:9-11 “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Introduction: The Bible talks about Jesus as Lord. He wants to be the Lord of every believer’s life. He wants to be the Lord of your life. The definition of the word “Lord” is: owner, chief, governor, master, ultimate authority, king. The Lord of all creation is our Lord Jesus Christ. We can be more than joyful to know that Jesus, who is perfect, who loves us, who is clean and pure is who has all the authority and lordliness. The term “Lord” also indicates: high position, complete control, master. That for, any one who calls Him Lord, must obey Him and do His will as the highest and faithful leader should.

4. In the New Testament the word “Savior” appears only 24 times, while the word “Lord” appears more than 600 times, demonstrating the importance of Jesus’ lordliness.
5. Seek with your entire mind and all your will offering all your life to serve and love the Lord. The apostle Paul urged the disciples that they offered their bodies as _____________________________, holy, pleasing to God. Romans 12:1, 2
a) Consider the decision of submitting all your rights to the Lord. He always protects and takes care of what is His. He will protect you, take care of you, and yours and everything you have and will have.
b) Consider the decision of handing over to God all your belongings. Genesis 22:1, 2 What did Abraham offer to
God? What did God do with Abraham? Genesis 22:16, 17 Can you trust that God will do the best with your life and your possessions if you hand them over to Him?
c) Commit yourself to be thankful to God no matter what.
1 Thessalonians 5:18; Ephesians 5:20. This is the key to know if you really have resigned to all your rights and if you have surrendered them to God.
d) Continue to seek the Lord’s direction every day. As you
see, you have to deny yourself, take your cross and follow Jesus constantly. Luke 9:23
