Lord and Savior

When we get saved, we invite Jesus to be the Lord and Savior of our life. The “Savior” part is pretty simple—and amazing. The “Lord” part can be a bit more complicated. Making Jesus your Lord means giving Him total control of your life, every day and in every way. Just as Jesus followed the leading of the Father, so the disciples and apostles in the New Testament followed Jesus as Lord. They rocked their world! They show us a life that can truly impact a nation for God. (Hannah Sheets)1

“And how blessed are those in whom you live, whose lives become roads you travel… God-traveled, these roads curve up the mountain, and at the last turn—Zion! God in full view!” (Psalm 84: 5,7; MSG)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  • If there are areas in your life where you haven’t allowed God to have full control, repent and give those to Him.
  • Renew your commitment to having Jesus be the Lord of your life.
  • Ask God to use your life to show others who Jesus really is.
  • Believe that all of His children following Him completely can transform this nation.

A prayer you can pray:

Jesus, thank you for being my Savior. Today I once again ask You to be Lord of my life. I surrender my life freshly to You, all of me and holding nothing back, and ask You to lead me. Make my life a vessel You can use to reveal Jesus to others. Help those of us in the body of Christ to follow You as Lord of our lives, so you might transform the nation we live in! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Jesus, I acknowledge You as Lord of my life and Lord over America!
