Let Jesus be Lord of Your Life!

Can anyone really harm you for being eager to do good deeds?  Even if you have to suffer for doing good things, God will bless you. So stop being afraid and don't worry about what people might do. Honor Christ and let him be the Lord of your life.

Always be ready to give an answer when someone asks you about your hope.

1 Peter 3:13-15

Jesus wants to be Lord of your life, and He will do it if you will let Him. The most unsettling thing about following Jesus is giving up control of your own life. You follow Jesus. Jesus does not follow you.

Christians do not chart their own course and ask Jesus to come along and bless them on the journey. Jesus did say "I am with you always" but He is with us because we are with Him as we walk in the path He sets before us.

When you let Jesus be Lord of your life He is the one who makes entries on your TO DO list. When you let Jesus rule your life He determines not just your actions, but also your attitudes and even your thoughts. When a thought comes in to your mind you quickly ask "where did that come from?" If it did not come from Jesus then you just as quickly dismiss the thought and entertain it no more!

When you let Jesus be Lord of your life you begin to live your life as if you were Jesus Himself. The things you do are the things He did. The thoughts you think are the thoughts that Jesus had. And your life becomes an earthly reflection of Jesus. When Jesus was here on earth there was only one man living that life. But now because men and woman have allowed Jesus to be Lord of there lives there have been millions who have lived as Jesus did.

How do you begin letting Jesus be Lord of your life? It starts with the next decision you make.

"Lord Jesus show me the way to go and even the thoughts to think about this thing that concerns me. May You be Lord of this and everything in my life. And may You be praised forever. Amen."
