At salvation, our precious Redeemer also becomes our Lord!
Acts 2:36 declares, “Therefore let all of the house of Israel know assuredly that God hath made the
same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
When you and I receive Jesus Christ as Savior, He not only becomes our Sin-Bearer and Sin-Deliverer, He also is our Lord—our Owner. Rejoice in the fact that Christ now has the title of Master as you give Him full permission to own you forever.
When I asked the Lord Jesus to come into my heart in that classroom, February 1972, I knew my life was no longer mine to do with as I pleased. It was His. He now had full claim, and I gave Him complete control of my body, soul, and spirit.
It is glorious to surrender absolutely, for only total yielding to Christ brings un into all truth. This is also what releases the power of the Holy Spirit, with all His glory!
Scripture explains, “And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him (Acts 5:32).
Obedience—which ushers in the Spirit—-takes place at the moment you confess, “I give You my life, Lord. It is no longer my own. I surrender it to Your Lordship unconditionally. I’m no longer the boss.”
