I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”

– John 15:15

Following Jesus is difficult … but it’s the path that leads to life. As Christians, when we talk about Jesus, we talk about Him as our Lord and Savior — and we should … because it’s a package deal. He can’t be your Savior without being your Lord. Yet very often, we think Lord means God and it doesn’t. “Lord” doesn’t mean God. Now in the Old Testament, when you see the name of God, sometimes Lord in all caps as a way to be respectful of the name of God, but Lord doesn’t mean God, it means master. It means king. It means boss. It means it’s His way. And if you want Him to be your Savior, He has to be your Lord. If you want Him to save your life, you have to let Him lead your life. And trust me, letting Jesus lead your life is the best thing that could ever happen to you.


Thank you, Lord, for being our Savior and our leader. I want to live your way, even when it’s difficult.


Do you let Jesus lead your life?
