Lord Jesus Christ - Colossians 1:3

 ...the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ...

Jesus is Lord.  He is the King of kings and Lord of lords.  That means He is in control and has the right to be obeyed.  Jesus is not a tyrant.  He does not force obedience.  However, He is not running a democracy either.  Our daily choices to submit to His Lordship will have both short-term and long-term consequences - for good or bad.  

While Jesus is Lord of the universe, He is also our Lord.  As Christians, we have acknowledged that Jesus is our personal Master regardless of how imperfectly we submit ourselves to His reign in daily life.  We need to keep that in mind.  It is not our opinions that count; it is not what we think is important that is important.  Our bottom line must always be:  What does the Bible say about that?
