Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: Lord (Kurios)
    You call Me Teacher and Lord,
    and you say well, for so I am.
    John 13:13
    Jesus is the Lord of Heaven, the Lord of the universe and the Lord of the Church; but most of all, He should be your personal Lord. Just as a human can be the lord of a manor because he owns the house and directs its activities, so Jesus should be the Lord of your body—His Temple—because He provides for your needs and directs your activities. Jesus wants to be more than a guest in your home; He wants the title deed so that you belong to Him.
    Jesus, enter my life as You might enter a home. Make my heart Your home. Live in my body.
    If Jesus is your Lord, He should rest in the living room of your life. Jesus should feel comfortable in the recreation room, where you play and entertain yourself. Jesus should be invited into your dining room, where you eat and satisfy your appetite. He won’t be happy if you eat the garbage of this world. Would Jesus rest comfortably in the bedroom of your life? Do you have a besetting sin hidden in the basement? When you invite Jesus into your home, He doesn’t enter as a decoration or as a celebrity to give your home status. He doesn’t come as a vacation guest or as a friend who pops in on the weekends. Jesus comes to be the Lord of your house.
    Jesus, I give every room in my house to You. Enter each room, cleanse it, and make it Your own. I will make You Lord of my life. Amen.
    Go Deeper: John 13:1-17
    Jesus will not be Lord at all, unless He is the Lord of all.
