When we believed the Gospel message we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We confessed Jesus as Lord before others (Romans 10:9) .Like the disciples of old we know Him as “The Lord.” When we see Him in heaven we will bow down and call Him Lord. That is how we speak to Him now in prayer if we have observed carefully what the Bible teaches. This is a very important truth. Making it a practical reality in our experience is essential for growth and blessing.
1. Who is Jesus? (Acts 10:36) Is He lesser than any other being in heaven or on earth? (Revelation 17:14)
2. What two things did Thomas call Jesus? (John 20:28) What does this mean practically in your life?
3. What must everyone do sooner or later, even in hell? (Philippians 2:10-11)
4. What does Jesus rebuke? (Luke 6:46) Why is the action contradictory or inconsistent?
5. As believers, we profess to love Jesus. If so, what does He say that we will surely do? (John 14:15) How have you done this?
6. For whom should we live our lives and why? (2 Corinthians 5:15)
7. What is the plea to the believer in Romans 12:1? In what way have you responded?
8. What should happen in our lives if we are doing this? (Romans 12:2)
Ask yourself these questions:
When and how did you make Jesus Christ the Lord and Master of your life?
How has this resulted in a day-by-day obedience to His Word?
How does your conduct, your time use, your money use and your talent use support what you say?
