Thoughts on Today's Verse...

More than titles, these two names of Jesus are the pillars around which we can build our lives in God's Kingdom. Jesus is Lord! He is our Ruler and King. He is our Master and Teacher. Our hearts are yielded to his will and open to his leading. We hold no rival to Jesus in our hearts and lives. Jesus is the Christ! He is the Messiah, the promised Savior of the Old Testament. He is the one of whom the prophets spoke. Jesus is Ruler and Savior, Master and Messiah. He is God's gift to bring us home. Jesus is the one who went to the Cross to bring us forgiveness, redemption, and salvation. Jesus, the Crucified One, is both Lord and Christ.

My Prayer...

We praise your mighty Name, O Lord, and thank you for your gracious and sacrificial love. We praise you, dear Father, for sending your Son, Jesus, to die for our sins, be raised to give us hope, and bring us salvation. Please help me, Sovereign God, to yield my heart to Jesus and open my lips to praise the Lord of my salvation. I pray in the mighty name of Jesus and through the intercession of the Spirit. Amen.
