114 Jesus as Lord

  1. 1. We have found in our studies that Jesus is God the Son, He is the Christ, the Messiah, and He is Savior. Today we are going to see Him as Lord. Many think or understand the name God and titles Christ, Messiah, Savior, and Lord have equal value, they mean the same thing. This is true in as much as all these qualities are found in Jesus. Let’s review and compare the meaning of each of these words.
  2. 2. To begin we found that Jesus was one with God as His Son, Creator of all. NIV The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
  3. 3. It is spelled out plainly that Jesus is our creator, thus He is God. Not the highest God, the Father, but the Heir, The Son who has all power. We have seen several times that Jesus is Savior, that He is the Christ which is Greek for the Hebrew Messiah, and He is Lord. We have found that the angel from heaven announced this to shepherds when Jesus was born.
  4. 4. NIV Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. Lets look at how Strong’s Concordance defines for these words.
  5. 5. Savior 4990 soter (so-tare'); from 4982; a deliverer, i.e. God or Christ: KJV-- saviour. Christ 5547 Christos (khris-tos'); from 5548; anointed, i.e. the Messiah, an epithet of Jesus: KJV-- Christ. Lord 2962 kurios (koo'-ree-os); from kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, i.e. (as noun) controller; by implication, Mr. (as a respectful title): KJV-- God, Lord, master, Sir.
  6. 6. Do you see the differences in these words? Savior is of course a deliverer, Christ or Messiah is God’s anointed one, Lord is one in authority, controller, master, and King if you will. Today we want to learn how Jesus is Lord. First, I want you to see how Jesus is in control and has authority over nature.
  7. 7. NIV Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!" He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, “Be still!” and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!"
  8. 8. Jesus is Lord, Master of nature, which is His creation. Who else was able to control nature? The ones I can think of are Moses, some of the prophets, Elijah controlled the rain. These men did not do it of there own power. God did these things through these men. Jesus is the only one who can change nature by His own power.
  9. 9. Jesus is Lord, Master, and Controller of our natural physical bodies. He as Creator has the power to heal and repair His creation. NIV When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. "Lord," he said, "my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly." Jesus said to him, "Shall I come and heal him?"
  10. 10. The centurion replied, "Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, 'Go,' and he goes; and that one, 'Come,' and he comes. I say to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it." When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, "Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.
  11. 11. I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would." And his servant was healed at that moment.
  12. 12. He is not like the “fake healer” you see on TV putting their hand on some cripples head and they fall back. No, He doesn’t even need to be physically with the person He heals. What He commands will be done where ever the problem is located. What I’m talking about is He does not have to be geographically in the same place to get the job done.
  13. 13. Jesus is Lord, Master even over death. Even before his own resurrection He was know to bring people back to life after they had been dead several days. NIV When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go."
  14. 14. Of course Jesus has power over life. He is the creator, He gave life in the beginning. Since we understand Jesus is God the Son, the Creator, it is not surprising He is Master of Nature and all His creation. What’s more is He came into His creation, lived a perfect life, and then became the perfect and final sacrifice purchasing us with His very own blood in His death.
  15. 15. It is a fact and not surprising that we owe Him our lives. We come to Him for salvation as it is only available through Him. When we seek His protection and blessing He will welcome us willingly. We become one belonging to Christ, a Christian.
  16. 16. The fact that Jesus is Lord and Master brings new meaning to obedience to His word. We desire to be loved by Jesus and receive protection from Him. We claim to love Him for taking our punishment for us. Do we really love Him? He tells us what love is for Him and how to remain in His love.
  17. 17. NIV "As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
  18. 18. In order for Him to keep loving us we have to obey Him. Do you love Him? You must obey Him to show this. In fact we learn from John’s first letter that if we don’t obey we don’t even know God.
  19. 19. NIV He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. Whoever says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.
  20. 20. Do you know God? Do you belong to Him? If you answer yes you must be living in obedience to Him by following the example of Jesus.
  21. 21. NIV I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
  22. 22. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.
