“Do you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?” (Part 2)

When I think of Lord I see King Aragorn from “Lord of the Rings!”)

 

Today we study Kurios ((koo’-ree-os)!
This is the greek interpretation of our english word “Lord.”

Definition: a person who has authority, control, or power over others; amaster, chief, or ruler.

See as my friend Doug had told me, “Many receive Jesus as their Savior, and not their Lord (Kurios).” He showed me that at times I even look at Christ as my Savior and miss the fact that he also to be my Lord. Lord is a word that usually holds great position as in master, supreme authority, or owner. See we must understand what a Lord is to understand the full gospel of receiving Christ as our Lord. See a Lord or man of authority usually rules over someone or something.

If we accept Christ as Savior to redeem us, than we must also accept him as Lord to DIRECT US. He now calls the shots! It means that we are taking a hands off approach to our lives and allowing Jesus to have full custody of our hearts, minds, and bodies. What we do we submit it under His authority and Lordship. He is our shepherd that cares for, guides, and corrects us. He’s my Lord that i wish to serve, make proud, and do His will. He’s a Lord that makes all things right, and has full authority of the heavens. He as MY Lord has full authority over me if I release myself to His service, and it is an amazing place to be.

See my Lord Jesus Christ ALWAYS has OUR best intentions in mind. We are now his mouth piece to carry out his word. He is just, and loving to all those that call upon and receive His name. He saved us, and now we give ourselves to Him so that we may one day live in paradise with him. See he is Lord of our future land, and Lord of our current life. When He speaks I wish to listen. When He calls to me to GO, I wish to be obedient (Often times this is VERY HARD!).

My father God, and Lord Jesus Christ love me dearly and because of this I can see Him as my Lord. The one who will guide my life, and in my surrender take care of every need. Name a GREAT ruler who doesn’t care for those whom he rules. My Lord is the rarest of all and his Kingdom shall reign for all eternity.

So how about it do you accept Jesus Christ as you LORD, and SAVIOR…..?

“Do you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?”

Often times I have heard this phrase, and only once have I said yes. Growing up in the church setting most of my life i have heard, seen, and asked this question to people. This is the basis of our entire Faith as a Christian is to accept Christ as our “Lord and Savior.” After sitting in my car the other day one of my friends had said this phrase, “See many people accepts Jesus as their Savior, but not as Lord.”

Hmmm…. What exactly did that mean! Unable to shake this question in my head I realized that we do ask one question for Salvation,  but there are actually  TWO ANSWERS! Join me as we look deeper in these two words. First off is Savior!

Definition:
savior [ˈseɪvjə] n.
a person who rescues another person or a thing from danger or harm

Ok so I see how this is rather simple. Do I accept Jesus as my personal Savior? Well yes Totally 100% I accept him. As do many others who come to see Jesus for the first time and have that experience. We see that Christ is our Savior and wishes to rescue us from all harm and as we surrender our lives to Him, He begins to do a transformation in us that defies the laws of this world. We see that in Him we can be made new whole because of His sacrifice on that brutal cross that saved us from our own iniquity. He IS our Savior, and so much more. He wishes to free us from a life of sin and move us into a relationship with Him. He can redeem us from our past and set us on course for a new life. He is our Savior and forever will be the one, and THE ONLY ONE that can set your soul into Heaven.

John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Tomorrow we look at Christ as also our LORD the one we seem to most commonly miss, and/or forget….

When moved by the Spirit…

Sometimes you just gotta sing 🙂 So I wrote a remix to Akon- Sorry, Blame it on me!! Enjoy the lyrics or find the song on my facebook!!

(verse 1)

I’m sorry that I wasn’t what you thought I was

I’m sorry that I didn’t work for your cause

I’m sorry that I didn’t go show the way

Im sorry that I just focused on me

Im sorry I got lost in myself

Im sorry that I put you on the shelf

And you were just wishin time with me

But I wouldn’t drop down to my knees

Im sorry that I got way to busy

Im sorry that I missed you on that street

I know you were just trying to seek me

And I was to blind to stop and see

Im sorry I didn’t stop and clothe you than

Im sorry I let you thirst again

If I could go back in time you see

I would make You my priority

(Chorus)

I understand that there are some problems
And I am not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show
If I can’t apologize for being wrong
Then it’s just a shame on me
I’ll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me [4x]
Said you can put the blame on me [3x]
You can put the blame on me

(verse 2)

Im sorry that I took the apple from the tree

And adding to all your pain and grief

Im sorry that the whip had to crack so bad

Im sorry that I didn’t love you dad

Im sorry that I got lost on my own

Im sorry that stepped away from your throne

I know that is where I was supposed to be

Because I have seen all the suffering

I only wish that  I could go back

So you wouldn’t have to feel that lash

I know I have done these things all wrong

Im sorry for what I do when I’m all alone

I know it hurts you when I fail

But I cant think but for myself

I only wish to admit my crimes

So I can give you back all those times

(Chorus)

I understand that there are some problems
And I am not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show
If I can’t apologize for being wrong
Then it’s just a shame on me
I’ll be the reason for your pain and you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me [4x]
Said you can put the blame on me [3x]
You can put the blame on me

Im sorry you ever felt alone

But know I was watching from my throne

Im sorry I had to move you from a life with me

That’s why I sent my son for thee

All I want is a life with you

Because I know what you’ve been through

I just wish to take all that grief

So come on and spend time with me

Just know that what was done was done for you

All those things my son went through

Was so you could find freedom in him

And all I would ask is you rapent

See the price was paid in full

And No debt remains on you

Im sorry for all the things you went through

But know that I will come to meet you soon

Ambassador or Christian?

 

Which would you like to be?

Christian– Any follower of Christ
Ambassador– an authorized messenger or representative

2 Corinthians 5:20
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

Me personally would like to be an authorized official with a mission sent to lands for my king. Paul calls us Ambassadors of Christ, so (Ephesians 6) Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. As an Ambassador we have rank, and it’s time to fulfill God’s calling.

 

Common question:
You a Christian?
Common answer:
Yes

Uncommon answer:
No, I’m an Ambassador of Christ!

O lord, teach us to be your ambassador……..

New Kid on the Block

So as I begin to sit here, pondering all God has done for me i come to a realization that maybe to my journal just won’t fulfill all God is doing. So i decided to start keeping a blog. The purpose of my blogging will be:

1) For my own personal comfort to see what God has brought me through to recognize he WILL NEVER leave me. 

2) To challenge, and teach others of my mistakes, and my walk and challenges.

3) This is also for all those who either are in search of a purpose, and for those who want to fulfill their purpose as Christians. My purpose in blogging will be to help others understand God’s Love, and pour all I know to help make a difference in a very crucial, and reviving time.  

I want to already thank all you who will be reading this, and pray that this will allow us to become better, and more efficient communicators, and followers to the MOST HIGH! =]
