Let Him Be Lord
“For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Luke 2:11 (NKJV)
There are several revelations of Jesus in the New Testament but I want us to look at the two primary revelations of Jesus in the New Testament.
Firstly, He is revealed to us as Savior as seen in our opening scripture. Jesus as Savior saves your spirit, soul and body. He also saves you from trouble, etc. Knowing Jesus as Savior basically is all about what you can get from Him.
The second primary revelation of Jesus in the New Testament is Jesus revealed to us as Lord as seen in our opening scripture.
Philippians 2:9-11 (NKJV) says, “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Knowing Jesus as Lord is referring to His authority; not only over devils, but also over you. This means that when you say Jesus is my Lord, you are saying you are under His authority; which means Jesus is your Boss.
There are many people who only know Jesus as Savior because of what they want from Him. When you know Him as your Boss or as Lord, you are not just serving Him because of what you want from Him, you are serving Him to do what He wants. You are living your life solely to please Him not yourself. You are living for His pleasure and glory.
In the Name of Jesus, according to Romans 10:9-10, I declare that Jesus is Lord. He is Lord over my spirit, soul and body. Today I willingly submit myself under His authority and to live my life for His pleasure and glory. Amen.

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Galatians 2:20 (NKJV)
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
2 Corinthians 5:15 (NKJV)
and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
Philippians 1:20-21 (NKJV)
according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
