LORD of our loves

Most of us have heard of the following axiom and probably even quoted it a few times ourselves: “If Jesus isn’t LORD of all (in my own life), then He’s not LORD at all.” This statement takes on a whole new meaning, though, when we decide to actually surrender to God…and leave our sinful selves and anti-Christ culture behind. Our mortal enemy will not take such a decision lightly but will instead relentlessly make us his prime target. Nor should we take our commitment lightly, for ‘none of us lives to himself and none of us dies to himself.’ In other words, my choices affect others, especially those in my immediate centers of influence. It is indeed, therefore, “high time to awake out of sleep, for now is our Salvation nearer than we first believed!” Only then, in a holy state of heightened vigilance, can we experience the ongoing liberation of our own right choices…and God’s empowerment therein. We can then live a changed lifestyle, one rooted in complete dependence upon and surrender to Christ; that is, the practice of true repentance, which means:‘being sorry enough to quit’ (the attitudes and actions that separate me from the only True Love of my life I can have hope in continually, Jesus Christ)!
