Lord Of All

Lord

Our Lord and Our Friend wants to be Lord of our lives, not in a dictatorial way, but in a loving, caring and protective way. He is all knowing {Omniscient} and He knows things that only we can know, if we are planted in Him.

The Holy Spirit comes to live inside us, while we ‘envelope’ ourselves in Christ Jesus. Romans 8 verse 1: Uses the word ‘in’, in the original translation this word ‘in’, means to envelope ourselves in Christ Jesus, just like we put a letter inside and envelope. So as a new creation persons, our life is hidden inside Christ Jesus.
With this New life in Christ, there are some things we need to attend to. Romans 6 verse 2:

“How can we who died to sin still live in it.”

Most people can name the supposed ‘Big Sins’ eg. murder and stealing, but they tend to forget, the ones listed as works of the flesh in Galatians 5  verse 19 to 21.

Alive in and to Christ Jesus, but dead to sin. Oh dear! don’t get us wrong, we can still function for The Kingdom of God, but we can’t function to our full potential, because sin {wrong-doings against God} effects the brightness in and around our life lamp.

If we are to become all we can be ‘IN’ Christ Jesus, we must get rid of everything out of our lives of which Christ Jesus can’t approve.

Our Lord and Our Friend doesn’t condemn us. He wants to bring us into a place where we are firing on all cylinders. He wants us always to be honest before Him.

Lord of All, all we do. Lets look at time is for instance, we  might have build Him into our finances but have we built Him into our time

Galatians 2 verse 20: “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me {enveloped in and around me}. The life I now live in the flesh. I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

That takes care of our time issues, because everything we do, should be lived out of the faith we have in Him.

God Bless.
