Pastor Mark Tiefel digs into "Lord" for our Word of the Week and our contuing series on the names of Jesus. This term Lord is not to be confused with the all-capital LORD found in the Old Testament in many English Bibles. LORD is the personal name for God, Jehovah or Yahweh, which sets Him apart from false gods. The term Lord is a common title for Jesus in the New Testament. It is a term given to one who has power or authority over others. The disciples called Jesus "Lord" recognizing His authority over them. We too need to remember that Jesus is more than just a man, He is true God, and has all power in heaven and on earth. He is our master and He deserves our respect. Whether we recognize Jesus as Lord now or not, all people will recognize Him as Lord on the last day. May the Spirit bring us to that knowledge through faith before that day comes!
