Text: Luke 6:46
And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
Read: Luke 6:46-49
It is customary for servants to obey their lords/masters. It is true that the Lord calls us no more servants but friends because He loves us. That does not however take away the fact that we were bought with the price of His blood.
Hence, we remain His servants in the real sense which is why we call Him Lord. It is however, confusing that we call Him Lord and yet refuse to obey Him. Look around you: there is no one that calls Jesus Lord that seem to obey Him absolutely. Every time we choose not to obey Him, we disregard Him as our Lord and leave ourselves open to the attack of the enemy. That is why He compares the obedient to one who built his house on the rock and the one who doesn’t to one who built on the sand and has regrets in the end.
Your disobedience has its consequences in the end. For all intents and purposes, you are the servant of whom you obey. If you obey Jesus as Lord, you have clear road map for success in life and He will ensure you succeed. If you don’t, you make yourself a servant of the enemy. Believe me, that fellow has nothing good to offer you. The end of being his is just destruction. So, why will Jesus say don’t steal and you find it convenient to steal? Or why will He say don’t commit fornication or adultery and you are in it? Don’t you know that by doing so you are banishing the good Lord from your affairs and inviting the wicked one to take root as your Lord?
Just yesterday you celebrated the birth of “your Lord”. But in real sense is He your Lord or another? Stop being caught between two opinions: if Jesus is your Lord in truth, obey Him and you will never have any cause to regret. But if you don’t find Him good enough for you, it is your liberty to choose another.
Unfortunately, the only other option is Satan who is considered the thief who only steals, kills and destroys. The choice is yours. Choose Christ today that you may have life and have it more abundantly.
Pray: Father, I acknowledge you a s Lord over my life. Please keep me in perpetual obedience unto you and none other till I fuse permanently with you in glory in Jesus name.
