The Lordship of Christ

14 03 2015

“Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and do not do what I say?”  Luke 6:46

According to, the word “Lord” is defined as “a person who has authority, control, or power over others; a master, chief, or ruler.”  To sum it up, if someone is Lord, they are the boss, they are the authority, they are the master.  Jesus never stepped away from the title of “Lord” knowing that His rightful place in the lives of mankind was to be the Master.  He can be nothing less than Lord in the lives of men.

Our problem becomes when we use the title “Lord”, yet fail to recognize the depth of its meaning.  “Why do you call me “Lord, Lord”, and do not do what I say?” is a legitimate question for you and I.  Christ has thrust it upon every heart, and demands that you and I step to the witness stand and give account of our actions.  We must take a earnest look at the answer to this question found in the way we live our lives.

When we own up to our failures, it is the first step in allowing Christ to take His proper place as Lord.  When we surrender to his rebuke of correction, not excusing ourselves, but rather humbling ourselves before Him, He takes the throne of Lordship in our hearts.  Without the surrender to His gentle correction, we will never be able to call Him “Lord” in complete confidence.
