Lord of All.

Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. The hairs of his head were white, like white wool, like snow. His eyes were like a flame of fire, his feet were like burnished bronze, refined in a furnace, and his voice was like the roar of many waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, from his mouth came a sharp two-edged sword, and his face was like the sun shining in full strength.

Revelation 1:12-16

Jesus’ last appearance on earth was to His disciples in the first chapter of Acts and outside of Pau’s supernatural encounter with the risen Christ, John’s description above is the most complete in the introduction to Revelation.

The next verse begins with…”When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead (Revelation 1:17a).” Who would respond otherwise?

Jesus is Lord of All.

Over the Easter weekend, Patrina and I spoke with our grandsons about the idea of Jesus’ Lordship. At some point, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess Jesus is Lord. Some willingly, some grudgingly, but all will bow.

Willingly is the best choice now, but how often have we limited Jesus’ Lordship in our lives? It is really about putting ourselves under the authority of Jesus, isn’t it?

Living under His authority affects more than our relationship with God. When Jesus has first place in everything it affects our marriages, our families, our careers, our interests, and even the entertainment we choose.

Jesus is Lord of my success, even when there isn’t a lot of success. He is my source. He is Lord of my family. I choose Him as Lord over my deepest desires, the affection of my heart, and my retirement plan.

Let’s give Him first place in everything today.
