JESUS IS LORD
April 26, 2009

 

   When we as Christians say that Jesus Christ is Lord, we often times do not “practice what we preach”. When the Bible talks of Jesus as Lord there are no limitations to His Lordship. If we are to be all that God wants us to be in this world for Christ, we must allow Jesus to be Lord over everything the Holy Scriptures say that He is Lord over. He is Lord of all- Philippians 2:9-11
