How do I make Jesus Lord of my life?

I recently starting following a blog called Altruisco: people healing people. This wonderful blog contains tons of information about the Bible, faith and Jesus, as well as a section on world religions. There are also great videos and a “What Does the Bible Say About” section that covers many subjects from abortion to sin to worship. 

Last week I read his post titled How do I make Jesus Lord of my life? and want to share it with you today. 

How do I make Jesus Lord of my life?

The key is understanding that Jesus is already Lord of your life. We do not make Jesus Lord. Jesus is Lord. What we are supposed to do is submit to His lordship. Another word for our response to Jesus’ Lordship is “submission.” To submit is to yield to the will and control of another, and, with reference to Christians, it is yielding to the will and control of Jesus Christ. This means that when Scripture commands believers to love one another (John 15:17), that is what is to be done. It means that when Scripture says we are not to commit adultery or steal (Exodus 20:14-15), these things are not to be done. It should be understood that submission, or obedience to the commands of God, is related to Christian growth and maturity, and is not related to becoming a Christian. A person becomes a Christian by faith alone in Christ apart from works (Ephesians 2:8-9).
