Jesus Is Lord!
PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11 NKJ 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
No matter what it may seem like at times, Jesus Christ is Lord. He is ruler, boss, king: the One ultimately in charge.
He just hasn't exercised His prerogative and taken charge of everything yet.
Jesus is not currently micro-managing everything on earth. He is not responsible for every mistake, accident, and bad thing happening in the world.
God has allowed mankind to "try things our way" so we may see the folly of going our own way in rebellion to God.
But this won't last forever. God has a plan with a limited amount of time allotted for this part of history.
Although God has set certain boundaries, basically human beings are now in control on earth. We are free to choose. Because we are free to choose, we bear the responsibility for the consequences of our chosen actions.
All that is bad in the world today is the result of choices people made. God is not to blame. His only blame is that He allowed us the freedom to choose.
One day Jesus will exercise His authority and put a stop to all evil. Not only that, but He will eliminate the curse and all its effects. He will make all things new, whole, and sound again.
One day everyone will see and acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ. You have that privilege today.
SAY THIS: Jesus Christ is Lord and I am glad!
