KEY SCRIPTURE: Luke 18:17 KJV” Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein”.
The kingdom of God in its figurative meaning or interpretation, is the rule of God over a man’s life. When an individual is submissive to the demands of the kingdom of God then is he part of the Kingdom of God. In a similar vein the Lordship of Jesus over a man means he or she acknowledges Jesus as his king. If one does not submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, he is not in the kingdom of God, and therefore he is not a Christian.
Many profess that Jesus is their Lord yet in practice there is nothing to show. Remember what the Lord said:’ not all who say Lord, Lord shall enter into the kingdom of God’. To claim that Jesus is your Lord, is to live to please Him. If Jesus is your lord you will walk in love. Hatred has no place in the heart of the man whom Jesus reigns. Your flesh is not your master any longer. The following is one of the things, that Jesus talked about, when He spoke about morals: Matthew 5:28 KJV “But I say unto you, that whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” Most people don’t just look to lust, but go ahead and commit the act of adultery. The acrimony or strive in many homes is alarming. How can you claim Jesus is your Lord and can’t live at peace with your spouse That Tom and Jerry marriage is a sign, Jesus is not Lord over your life? Repent now.
THIS is your moment to straighten up your life and relationship with the Master. If Jesus is truly Lord, your flesh would cease to dictate to you. There would be an attitude of honoring your partner, even if his or her actions fall short of expected standards. Make Jesus the real Lord and you would be a true child of God. To be a Christian you declare that Jesus is your Lord. Note: To confess He is your Lord and not to make Him Lord in practice and in your actions nullifies the confession you made.
Repent from this moment and really make Jesus Lord over your life indeed.
Heavenly father, I confess that I have lived against your word. I repent from this moment and surrender my life to the Lordship of Jesus. I would live to please His name in all I do.
Matthew 7:21 KJV” Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
Titus 1:16 KJV” They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”
