1
The Lordship of Jesus Christ
  • For our citizenship is in heaven
  • whence also we wait for a Saviour,
  • the Lord Jesus Christ
  • - Philippians 320 -

2
The Lordship of Jesus
  • Many today speak of Jesus as their Lord and
    Savior without actually submitting to Jesus as
    their Lord (immoral music artists often thank
    Jesus during awards shows for being their Lord
    and Savior)
  • Others focus on Jesus as Savior and not on
    Jesus as Lord but Jesus is both
    (Mt. 2241-45)

The Lordship of Jesus
  • Lord Jesus is found 115 times in the NT (KJV)
  • Jesus is Lord because he was God in the flesh
    (Rom. 13-4)
  • The lordship of Jesus was preached by Peter (Acts
    236-38 1036,48)
  • The lordship of Jesus was preached by Paul (Acts
    1631-33)

5
Lordship Involves Authority
  • Lord (Gr. kurios) means having power or
    authority
  • Government/citizen relationship (Mk. 1042)
  • Master/servant relationship (Lk. 1426-23)
  • Husband/wife relationship (1 Pet. 31-6)
  • Jesus Christ/mankind relationship (Rev. 1714
    1916)

6
Lordship Involves Authority
  • Jesus has authority to require our whole lives
    (Rom. 146-9)
  • Jesus has authority to judge us (1 Cor. 44)
  • Jesus has authority as Head over all the church
    (Eph. 122-23 45)
  • Jesus has authority to issue commands
    (1 Thess. 41-2)

7
Lordship Implies Obedience
  • If we truly accept Jesus lordship we must obey
    him (Mt. 721 Lk. 646)
  • If we truly preach Jesus lordship we must preach
    obedience to all of his commands (Mt. 2818-20)
  • We do not have a right to change, ignore, or defy
    the Lord Jesus words! We do not have a right to
    turn to mans word for our authority!

8
Lordship Modern Religion
  • Are modern preachers really preaching the
    lordship of Jesus when they say, Receive Jesus
    as your Lord and Savior?
  • Why do so many neglect baptism (Mk. 1616), the
    Lords supper (Lk. 2219), etc.?
  • Talk about rebellion to authority!

9
Jesus Is Lord
  • Let us faithfully obey his lordship (Acts
    228-16 Rom. 109-10)
  • Let us remain true to his lordship
    (Acts 1120-23)
  • Let us daily serve under his lordship
    (Acts 2018-24, 35 2113-14)
  • Let us preach boldly his lordship (Acts 2831)
