Jesus Is Lord! By S. M. Lockridge

The title Lord is a mark of respect and is implied pledge of obedience.
Once Simon Peter stood before a hostile crowd and said: "God hath made that same Jesus Whom ye have crucified both Lord and Christ."

Christ represents the thing which God hath done to redeem us.
Lord represents that we ought to do because we are redeemed.

We ought to call Him Master and be His obedient servants!
We ought to call Him Owner because He possesses absolutely our lives!
In Him we live and move and have our being!
We ought to call Him Father and be obedient sons and daughters!
He is our only hope!
He is our only help!
God is our refuge and our strength . . .

Jesus is Lord!

He came down the stairway of heaven:
Born in Bethlehem!
Brought up in Nazareth!
Baptized in Jordan!
Tempted in the wilderness!
Performed miracles by the roadside!
Healed multitudes without medicine and made no charges for His services!
He conquered everything that came up against Him!
He even went up on Calvary and died there and then went down in the grave!
And there cleaned out the grave and made it a pleasant place to wait for the resurrection!
And then on scheduled time by the might of His own power He got up with every form of power in the orbit of His omnipotence!
Men have been trying to wrestle His power from Him all these years!
Then, then they are trying to wait; they think that maybe one time His power will fail!
Men have tried to destroy Him!
But don't you know you can't destroy Him!
What you gonna use for power – all power belongs to Him!

Well, if you try to destroy Him by fire, He'll refuse to burn!
If you try to destroy Him by water, He'll walk on the water!
If you try to destroy Him by a strong wind, the tempest will lick His hand and lay down at His feet!
If you try to destroy Him with the Law, you'll find no fault in Him!
If you try to destroy Him with the seal of an empire, He'll break it!
If you try to destroy Him by putting Him in the grave, He'll rise!
If you try to destroy Him by rejection or ignoring Him, before you know it you'll hear a still, small voice saying behold I stand at the door and knock!
If a man open the door I'll come in and sup with Him!

He's Lord!

Yes He is!  He's Lord!

He's the Pearl from Paradise!
He's the Gem from the Glory Land!
He's the true fairest of the Jewel!
He's time's choicest Theme!
He's life's strongest Cord!
He's light's clearest Ray!
He's purity's whitest Peak!
He's glory's stateliest Summit!

He's Lord!

His name stands as a synonym for free healing, friendly help, and full salvation!
He blessed!
His blessed name is like honey to the taste!
It's like harmony to the ear!
It's like help to the soul!
It's like hope to the heart!

I'm trying to tell you – He's Lord!  Yes He is!

He is higher than the heaven of heavens!
And He's holier than the Holy of Holies!

He's Lord!

In His birth is our significance!
In His life is our example!
In His cross is our redemption!
In His resurrection is our hope!

He's Lord!

At His birth men came from the East!
At His death men came from the West!
And the East and the West met in Him!

He's Lord!  Yes He is!  Hallelujah!  He's Lord!

And the Lord God omnipotent reigneth!

And He, yes He will!  He's gonna reign, and you don't have to worry!
There will come a time when every knee is gonna bow!
Not only at the name but to the name!
And every knee is gonna bow in the name!
What!  Every knee is gonna bow and every tongue is gonna confess!
I confess that He's my Lord!
I love to call Him my Lord!
The Lord is love!
The Lord is my light and my salvation!
The Lord is the strength of my life!
The Lord is my Shepherd I shall not want!
I shall not want for rest, for He maketh me to lie down in green pastures!
I shall not want for refreshment, for He leadeth me beside still waters!
I shall not want for forgiveness, for He restoreth my soul!
I shall not want for companionship, for yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for Thou art with me!
I shall not want for comfort, for Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me!
I shall not want for sustenance, for Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies!
I shall not want for joy, for Thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over!
I shall not want for anything in this life, for goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life!
I shall not want for anything in the life to come, for I'll dwell in the house of the LORD forever!

The LORD is my Shepherd I shall not want!
The LORD is my light and my salvation!

Is He yours?!

You can crown Him King in your own heart right now!

You can crown Him Lord of all in your heart right now!

Jesus Christ is Lord!
