Jesus is Lord.
- What does it mean when we say “Jesus is Lord”? It means Jesus is Lord of all creation. He is the king. Even when things are out of control, he is the king. Even when he seems absent, he is the king. He has plans for creation and his plan is to restore the whole mess to its original beauty and purpose, as when he created it in the first place and said, “It is good.”
- We ought, as Christians, to also mean that he is our Lord. He is the king of our church and the king of our lives together. We owe allegiance only to this king and no other. We listen to him and obey him — we build our house on the rock.
Jesus is Lord. I need to say it more often.
