Who Rules Your Life?

“Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, ‘One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.’”

Mark 10:21


Ponder This

Repentance and faith are connected. When you turn from sin, you turn to Jesus. This man’s sin was greed; he had to turn from it and toward the Lord Jesus Christ. This man needed a new master. Jesus said, “Come and follow Me.”

Is Jesus Christ the Lord of your life? Only you can give the true answer to that question. This is in your own heart. Romans 10:9 says: “if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Faith is not merely nodding a head to a series of theological facts about Jesus. We must make Jesus the Lord and Master of our lives.
