Jesus Christ is Lord


Jesus Christ is Lord

--Bible Verses to ponder--

John 14:6-11(TLB) 
Jesus told him, "I am the Way--yes, and the Truth and the Life. 
No one can get to the Father except by means of me. 
{7} If you had known who I am, 
then you would have known who my Father is. 
From now on you know him--and have seen him!" 

{8} Philip said, "Sir, show us the Father and we will be satisfied."

{9}Jesus replied, "Don't you even yet know who I am, Philip,
 even after all this time I have been with you?
 Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! 
So why are you asking to see him?

 {10} Don't you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?
 The words I say are not my own but are from my Father who lives in me. 
And he does his work through me.
 {11} Just believe it--that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. 
Or else believe it because of the mighty miracles you have seen me do.

1 Cor 12:3 (TLB) 
But now you are meeting people
 who claim to speak messages from the Spirit of God. 
How can you know whether they are really inspired by God
 or whether they are fakes? 
Here is the test:
 no one speaking by the power of the Spirit of God can curse Jesus, 
and no one can say, "Jesus is Lord," and really mean it, 
unless the Holy Spirit is helping him.
  
Acts 17:23-28 (TLB) 
for as I was out walking I saw your many altars, 
and one of them had this inscription on it--' To the Unknown God.' 
You have been worshiping him without knowing who he is, 
and now I wish to tell you about him. 
{24} "He made the world and everything in it, 
and since he is Lord of heaven and earth,
 he doesn't live in man-made temples; 
{25} and human hands can't minister to his needs--
for he has no needs! 

He himself gives life and breath to everything, 
and satisfies every need there is. 
{26} He created all the people of the world from one man, Adam, 
and scattered the nations across the face of the earth.
 He decided beforehand which should rise and fall, and when. 
He determined their boundaries.

 {27} "His purpose in all of this is that they should seek after God,
 and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him--
though he is not far from any one of us. 
{28} For in him we live and move and are! 
As one of your own poets says it, 'We are the sons of God.'

Phil 2:5-11 (TLB)
 Your attitude should be the kind that was shown us by Jesus Christ, 
{6} who, though he was God, did not demand and cling to his rights as God, 
{7} but laid aside his mighty power and glory, 
taking the disguise of a slave and becoming like men. 
{8} And he humbled himself even further, 
going so far as actually to die a criminal's death on a cross.

 {9} Yet it was because of this that God raised him up to the heights of heaven
 and gave him a name which is above every other name, 
{10} that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow
 in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
 {11} and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
 to the glory of God the Father.

Rev 3:14b-22 (TLB) 
"This message is from the one who stands firm, 
the faithful and true Witness 
(of all that is or was or evermore shall be), 
the primeval source of God's creation: 

{15} "I know you well--you are neither hot nor cold; 
I wish you were one or the other! 
{16} But since you are merely lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth! {17} 

"You say, 'I am rich, with everything I want; I don't need a thing!' 
And you don't realize that spiritually you are wretched 
and miserable and poor and blind and naked.

 {18} "My advice to you is to buy pure gold from me, gold purified by fire--
only then will you truly be rich. 
And to purchase from me white garments,
 clean and pure, so you won't be naked and ashamed; 
and to get medicine from me to heal your eyes and give you back your sight. 

{19} I continually discipline and punish everyone I love;
 so I must punish you unless you turn from your indifference 
and become enthusiastic about the things of God. 

{20} "Look! I have been standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking.
 If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door,
 I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me. 

{21} I will let everyone who conquers sit beside me on my throne,
 just as I took my place with my Father on his throne when I had conquered. 

{22} Let those who can hear 
listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches."
