Night 7-The Sinner’s Prayer (Lord of My Life)

Updated: Mar 7

The final part of the Sinner’s Prayer is to ask Jesus to become “Lord” of your life. Many of us say this and guide others through this part of the prayer, but what does that even mean? What does it mean to make Jesus Lord of your life?

To make Jesus Christ Lord of our life means that we surrender complete control. We obey all of His Ways, and His ultimate authority in our lives. Who do we look to when we choose everyday life decisions no matter how big or small? Did we ask God before we took that job? Did we pray before we started that ministry? Allowing Jesus to truly be Lord of our lives requires us to fully surrender to His Will in all that we do. It requires that we lay down our flesh, and walk in the spirit. Galatians 5:16-18 says, "So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not able to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law."

In the United States, we've allowed democratic culture to influence our view of Christ's Lordship. The entire premise of the “American dream” is based on us being able to become and do whatever we want for our lives. This is great if we are simply a United States citizen, but not when we are committing to the Lordship of Christ. Jesus' Words and instructions are not something we can "vote" on. As His citizens, we are mandated to submit ourselves to His instructions, ways, and will. 

In this topic, Paztuh Mike will finish off the discussion going into depth about our need to make Jesus Christ Lord of our lives. He will shed light on the deception we often find ourselves in as Christians by not knowing what Lordship means, and exhort us to live our lives fully for God.
