Every so often, somebody will say something like, “You know, when I was a child I accepted Jesus as my Savior, and that settled whether I was going to heaven or hell, and now I have made Him my Lord.” I am sorry. God sent me here to tell you if He is not your Lord, then He is not your Savior. You don’t pick and choose what you want of Jesus.
There are a lot of people who think they are doing God a wild favor by accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior so they can have a little fire insurance and not go to hell. Now, He is Savior and He does save, but we cannot have what He gives unless we receive Who He is. He is Lord!
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11).
