Jesus is Lord!

Message by Pastor Gilbert Nigh

Text: Ephesians 1:15-23

John MacArthur years ago wrote this saying about an issue he wrote and said the gospel called to faith presupposes that sinners must repent of their sins and yield to Christ’s authority. The context of this statement he was talking about is a number of years ago there was something called the lordship controversy or lordship discussion. Those of you who have been around church for a few more years than others might remember this one. And the idea going for a while there there is teaching going around that said you could accept Jesus as your saviour, but he wouldn’t necessary have to be your lord. So it was almost like two decisions you make. You make the decision to accept Him as your saviour and then you can decide to accept Him as lord. And people responded to that said no you accept Jesus as saviour and lord is a better way to think about this. Not two separate decisions. You cannot say Jesus is my saviour but he is not lord of my life. That’s not really a valid statement. So there’s a number of people who wrote about this and John MacArthur was one. He wrote strongly against that idea.
