Jesus as Lord in our life

It’s the principal of the matter

To most people, many things in life come down to the principle of the matter, and while that is fine and well, as long as the principle is a guideline worthy of imitation, to the Christian there are many things that come down to the principal of the matter – namely, doing what we do as a disciple because it is expected by the teacher who is Savior, Teacher and Lord.

So remember, a principle of Christianity may not make sense to the world but it’s because the world doesn’t understand the principal behind the matter (1 Corinthians 1:18-25).

You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am.” (John 13:13)

The Jesus Factor

Often times when people make decisions concerning their attitude toward the church, their sin, their lifestyle, their prayer life and their eternal destiny they do so without considering the “Jesus factor” into the equation.

Many try to seek God without considering the church – the Jesus factor says that it can’t happen (Matthew 16:18).

Many try to seek God without considering the necessary atonement for their sins – the Jesus factor says that it can’t happen (Matthew 26:26-28).

Many try to seek an avenue to God without considering any constraint in their life choices – the Jesus factor says that it can’t happen (Matthew 7:13-14).

Many try to seek God through various mediators without considering the medium – the Jesus factor says that it can’t happen (1 Timothy 2:5).

Many try to seek an eternity with God without considering his eternal word – the Jesus factor says that it can’t happen (John 1:1; 14:6).

If we fail to add the “Jesus factor” into any equation of spiritual problems we will fail regardless of the problem we’re trying to solve. EA

Then Peter answered and said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, let us make here three tabernacles: one for You, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” (Matthew 17:4-5)
