Brothers and Sisters we throw these two words around, for some it is as common as one putting on their clothes, for others it is a Social things, while yet there are few who use Lord and Savior having Understanding to there meanings.
In today’s Society, it would seem they mean very little other than JUST a Title, but they mean so much more.
Savior: a person who saves someone or something (especially a country or cause) from danger, and who is regarded with the veneration of a religious figure.
Lord: someone or something having power, authority, or influence; a master or ruler; used in exclamations expressing surprise or worry, or for emphasis; act in a superior and domineering manner toward (someone).
Most only verily Understand Savior, that is, Jesus Saved them from Eternal Damnation in The Lake Of Fire and gave them Passage into The Kingdom Of Heaven with No Judgment of What They Do or Say. But Our Savior and Lord Jesus had some things to say about being Saved and Your Walk.
Isaiah 43:11 KJV
“I, [even] I, [am] the LORD; and beside me [there is] no saviour.”
Luke 2:11 KJV
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.”
John 4:42 KJV
“And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard [him] ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.”
Acts 5:31 KJV
“Him hath God exalted with his right hand [to be] a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.”
Matthew 7:21-23 KJV
“21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Matthew 25:11-12 KJV
“11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.”
Brothers and Sisters both Must Apply in one’s Life, it cannot be Just One, believing you will Enter Into The Kingdom Of Heaven. You cannot call Jesus Savior unless you Truly Understand the Price He Paid for Your Life. That Jesus, whom is God, came down from Heaven and TOOK Every Sin, Every Transgression in doing so, The Father turned His Back on His Only Begotten Son, The Father could not even Look upon His Own Son.
Matthew 27:46 KJV
“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
So Understand this, Jesus was not only beaten with fist and rods, spit upon, cursed at, was humiliated, mocked, forsaken of those whom He had ministered to, wiped with a wipe of nine tails, having pieces of metal, rocks, anything sharp, carried His Cross, had nails driven in His Hands and Feet, hoisted up for all to see His Suffering and having His Father turn His Back on him, then dying. Then if that was not enough, had to go to Hell and fight Satan for the Keys Of Death and Hell. These things are what Our Savior Jesus did to Become Your Savior, and yet so many of you take just this First Part so lightly.
Too many of you “say” that Jesus is Your Savior, but most of you have no clue what Jesus had to do to Save You. The Fathers Rules are in the Old Testament, that a Sacrifice For Sin had to be given multiple times in a year and those Sacrifices had to be Pure without any Blemishes, meaning they could not have any spots of any kind, had to be healthy without any diseases, nor have in physical issues, this was the ONLY Sacrifice The Father would accept. Jesus as Savior had to be Equal in being Our Sacrifice For Sin, He had to be Perfect In The Sight Of The Father, BEFORE the Worlds Sin was laid upon Him.
You Pastor’s, Leader’s of a church (denominations), who should be The Church (Bought By Jesus), do not tell the Sacrifice that Jesus went through to those whom you are to watch over, giving an account for them. You think that Easter Sunday is the only time that you must worry yourselves of such things and even in doing so you Dramatize it. Jesus being Savior is more than some play you put on, it should be a Life Lesson taught many, many, many times a year so that the People do not forget The Price of Jesus Being Their Savior means. It is a Lesson that should never be forgotten, nor thought of lightly, but taken to The Heart, to The Mind, giving us Strength, a part of Our Soul! This is only the First Step to Salvation, in which leads to Jesus Becoming Lord.
Luke 6:46 KJV
“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
Matthew 16:24-25 KJV
“24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
Matthew 10:39 KJV
“He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”
Matthew 10:32-33 KJV
“32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”
Matthew 10:27-28 KJV“
27 What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, [that] preach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Matthew 10:24-25 KJV
“24 The disciple is not above [his] master, nor the servant above his lord. 25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more [shall they call] them of his household?”
There is No Silent Born Again, Blood Bought, but Our very Lives How we Walk and Talk, who we Associate With depends upon Your Salvation! Jesus says, Jesus SAYS, that in order to be Acceptable To Him, that WE Must give up Our Lives, not being like those in The World, but to be Godly, to be As God On Earth.
Matthew 6:9-10 KJV
“9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven.”
In Your Salvation, there Must be a Transformation Of Power and Authority to MAKE Jesus Lord OVER YOUR LIFE!!! To make Jesus Lord, Your Will, Your Thoughts, Your Strength, Your Soul must be Transformed, you cannot stay as you were, CHANGE MUST HAPPEN!!! If there is No Change, then Jesus is NOT YOUR SAVIOR!!!
Paul wrote in Romans that who we once were can no longer be, that Our Lives Must Reflect Jesus, that it is the Only Acceptable way to Live.
Romans 12:1-2 KJV
“1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV
“Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
To make Jesus Lord everything that we once knew, must change in to Jesus Perspective, not ours. Most get the above Scripture wrong, they think that once you Accept Jesus AS Savior that there are no more needed changes, but the end of the Scripture says, …all things BECOME, BECOME, BECOME New! The word Become means it is not there yet, but is moving towards.
If Jesus is Lord over You Life that means that the way you Talk, Act are Becoming Godly. So then, this means how I do my Job, how I Live, how I Treat Others will change, only IF Jesus is Lord! This Brothers and Sisters is a battle not easily won, but can be. To make Jesus Lord Over Our Lives, Jesus sent us The Holy Spirit to teach us How To Live and Scriptures to Read, the Two being in Agreement! If you do not Read Your Bible, then how are you going to know How To Live Godly? If you do not Seek Jesus in a Relationship, How are YOU going to Know Him? If you do not bring Your Body, Mind, Soul and Strength into Obedience to Jesus, then Who Is Lord?
This is the Greatest Commandment in All Of Scripture…
Matthew 22:37-38 KJV
“37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment.”
Jesus will not be in Competition with No One, not you, not your family, not your neighbors, not your job, not your friends, not anyone or anything, Jesus Must be the First above All Things that is in Your Life… in order to MAKE HIM LORD!!! This means Jesus Words, The Scriptures, must be Lived Out in Our Lives for All To See and Hear.
Matthew 5:14-16 KJV
“14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
People, every day, read you like a book. They know you sometimes more than you know yourself. So, what kind of Book are they reading? Is it a Love Story between You and Jesus? Is it a Book of Deception? Rather we like it or not you are being read!
If you tell someone that Jesus is Your Savior and Lord then you better be Living it or YOU are a Liar! Now before anyone comes unglued, gets mad, Yes, there is Grace and Mercy, but do you really know what they are in Your Life? To those who try hard to Walk as Jesus commands us to and we slip, fall, even backslide, IF we Repent and turn away from such things, then do Grace and Mercy apply to Our Lives. But to the ones who desire to Live as The World does, Mercy and Grace may not apply, less it is to get you to Repent.
Brothers and Sisters you really need to take time and think about Jesus being Your Savior First and then Weigh Your Life to The Scriptures to see if Jesus is Truly Your Lord.
Savior and Lord IS Jesus!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
