Since we truly love the Lord, how do we insure that we are truly treating Him as Lord and not just offering Him lip service? Here are some specifics; I’ve made bold the most relevant words and phrases.
Matthew 8:9 (same as Luke 7:8 below) – “For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.”
Matthew 9:13 – “But go and learn what this means…” – Correlate with Ephesians 5:10 below.
Luke 6:46-49 – “”Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them…”
Luke 7:8 (same as Matthew 8:9 above) – “For I also am a man placed under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.””
Luke 10:38-42 – “who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word” – Martha had jumped to service before listening long enough to understand what service the Lord wanted. By contrast, Mary came to Jesus to learn what service would please Him. There are therefore two key aspects to actualizing the lordship of Christ: hearing and doing.
John 2:5 – “Whatever He says to you, do it.”
John 8:31 – “”If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine”
Romans 13:1-7 – See 1 Peter 2:13-15 below.
Ephesians 5:7-10 – “…trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.” – Correlate with Matthew 9:13 above.
Ephesians 6:5-8 – See 1 Peter 2:13-15 below.
Colossians 3:22, 23, 24 – See 1 Peter 2:13-15 below.
1 Peter 2:13, 14, 15 – “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution“
