Exhortation-Savior Lord

Is Jesus Lord? The answer is of course, yes, Jesus is Lord of both Heaven and Earth. His rule is over all. This much is an established fact. But what does that mean to us? It means that He is our ruler and not like those who are only earthly rulers. Their authority over us is limited. But the authority that Jesus has over us is completely unlimited. He rules all of our affairs as well as rules in our hearts and minds. We are to render our allegiance to Him not only in our deeds but also in our words and even our very thoughts.
         When we see the Lordship of Christ in this light, our failure to absolutely submit our wills to Him becomes obvious. We have not been perfectly faithful in our deeds or our words or our thoughts.
         But thanks be to God that Jesus is our Savior Lord. He requires absolute submission but also provides forgiveness for us who struggle against the flesh in this earthly body. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.
         So, let us confess our weakness and sin and look to Christ for His grace and mercy.
