Lordship names of God

Jesus is Lord part 2

abraham4[1]

“Likewise you reckon also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:11

We can reckon ourselves alive unto God because of the power working within us that enables us to call upon Jesus Christ as Lord. “Now to him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine, by the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21

The term for Lord in Romans 6:11 is Kurios in the Greek and refers to one supreme in authority, but more importantly it is slave talk. In the New Testament, the word Kurios (slave) is used 711 times, and always refers to Jesus as Master. Kurios is unequivocal in its meaning according to Kittle, a premiere Theological Greek Dictionary. Kurios has one meaning and that is slave.

In almost all English translations, the word Kurios is translated servant (it might be offensive) except when referring to a specific person, but in reality the word is undeniably “slave.” The New Testament writers had no problem referring to themselves as slaves, “Paul, a slave of Jesus Christ…” Romans 1:1; “James, a slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ…” James 1:1; “Simon Peter, a slave and an apostle of Jesus Christ…” 2Peter 1:1; “Jude, the slave of Jesus Christ…” Jude 1.

The Christian is one who recognizes his life is not his own, he was created, rebelled, and was bought back by the sacrificial death of Christ. Such recognition can only mean one thing – a willful and loving submission to Jesus Christ as Lord and Master.

About GI

I write a blog called Godly Increase to help people understand that life is not at all what it seems. The masses live as though there is no God, but apart from Him nothing else could exist. God not only created but also sustains our world, so that all what seems to be governed by the laws of physics are themselves controlled by the divine person who wrote a book to explain the meaning of life. The book is the Bible and it is the only source of truth on the planet. Within God's book secondary causes are articulated, but God is the primary cause of all things. Some may plant, others may water, but it is God that causes the growth.
