“For there is born to you this day in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
Jesus was Lord as He existed for all of eternity past (Micah 5:2). Jesus was Lord when He created the universe (Col. 1:16). Jesus was Lord when He left heaven and took on human flesh (Luke 2:11). Jesus was Lord when He lived a perfect, matchless life on this earth (Matthew 8:2-3). Jesus was Lord when He was arrested and handed over to Pontius Pilate (John 18:37, 19:10-11). Jesus was Lord when He went to the cross (John 10:17). Jesus was Lord when He defeated death and walked out of the tomb (John 10:18). Jesus was Lord when He appeared to His disciples after the resurrection (John 20:28). Jesus was Lord when He ascended to heaven and took His place at the right hand of the Father (Hebrews 1:3-4; Eph. 1:19-23). Jesus will be Lord when He returns (1 Thess. 4:16). At the end of time, Jesus will be confessed as Lord by every tongue and every knee will bow before His authority (Phil. 2:8-11).
All of this leads to a very important question; Is Jesus Lord of your life? Is Jesus the Lord of every area of your life? If He is not, then you are missing the point of Christmas! Jesus is Lord!
