“Jesus is Lord!” Say what?

Jesus is Lord, means:

  • Christ’s choices, not my choices.
  • Sold-out discipleship, not shipwrecked religion that has abandoned the practice of daily discipleship.
  • Christ’s control not my control.
  • In Jesus’ name, not in my name.
  • Christ’s will be done, not my will be done.
  • Jesus sets my boundaries, not me.
  • “Christ in you, the hope of glory,” not human-powered religion.
  • Self-surrender, not self-care.
    • What the living Jesus desires, not what I desire.
    • I belong to the risen Jesus, not to myself.

Jesus, I belong to You . . . (O Lord, help me to let You fully control the keyboard of my life every moment of every day and night so that You can continually write whatever You want to on the tablet of my heart and mind and freely direct my thoughts, feelings, words, and behaviors according to Your will not mine.)

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
