Eph. 2:19-22 So now you Gentiles are no longer strangers and foreigners. You are citizens along with all of God's holy people. You are members of God's holy family. We are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.

If you are building your life on any other foundation other that Christ, your life will crumble and fall apart. There is nothing you can do to make yourself strong enough to stand up against God. You will never be able to atone for your sins by living a good enough life. There is absolutely nothing you can do to keep God from sending you to hell unless, you accept Jesus as your Savior. Jesus makes us a part of God's family, citizens of heaven. Jesus makes us suitable houses for God to live in on earth.

And by the way, Jesus is not just our Savior, He is our Lord. We cannot separate the two. Jesus is both Savior and Lord. We often times don't seem to get it. We open the door to our hearts and profess Jesus as Savior and we stop there. We often think that it is good enough, but is it? What makes us think that Jesus has a split personality? He is both Savior and Lord and when He is in our lives our lives must show it. God's people are a holy people and they only become holy as they allow Jesus to become their Lord.

We often treat Jesus as if He were holding onto our lives by a thread. We want Him to hang around for the sake of our souls, but we don't want Him to interfere in how we live. Dear friend, it doesn't work that way. Like it or not, if Jesus is your Savior He is going to mess with your life. He is going to make His presence felt and change you. You can't have it your way. Jesus is Savior and Lord, the foundation upon which we build our lives and are found to be acceptable and pleasing to God.

Is Jesus your LORD today?
