Romans 10:9 (NIV)
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Being a Christian means you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. He is your savior because He saves you from the bondage of sin and death and the bondage of the devil. Jesus offers you total salvation. This means He saves you from spiritual, psychological, emotional and physical bondage. He does not only deliver you from unclean spirits but He delivers you from addictions and other such forms of bondage. He sets your body free from diseases and gives you a new life that strengthens your mortal body.
When you say Jesus is your Lord, this means you are handing over the ownership and government of your life to Him. You no longer live to please yourself but now live to please Him. This also means that you accept that He is now responsible for you. When you believe and say those words(Rom 10:9: ‘Jesus is Lord’) and mean them, you are sealing a deal that includes the transfer of the ownership of your life to Christ Jesus.
When you accept Christ’s Lordship over your life, you have also accepted His protection and provision. It is what you hand over to someone that he personally takes responsibility for. Many believers don’t grow and see Christ’s mighty power in their lives because they have not fully handed over the ownership and control of their lives to Him. They are still in charge and they wonder why they do not walk in the authority of Christ Jesus. Jesus is either Lord of all or He is not Lord at all. He is too big to share the ownership of your life. Give Him your all and see the incomparable benefits.
Prayer: Dear Lord, I ask that you come and take full control of every aspect of my life from this moment. Amen.
