Unlimited: Jesus is Your Saviour and Lord

God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:11).
It’s easy to just say “thank you”, without being truly grateful, but it’s often harder to show our gratitude.
Two blind men once came to Jesus and asked him to have mercy on them (Matthew 9:27–31). He healed them, and then he told them to make sure that they told absolutely no-one about what had happened. Instead, they both raced off and started telling everyone what Jesus had done.
Yes, Jesus had saved them from their blindness – in this sense, he was their Saviour.
Jesus must be Saviour and Lord. Is Jesus your Saviour and Lord as well?
But if they had been truly grateful, they should have done what Jesus asked them to do. In obeying Jesus, they would not only have been accepting him as their Saviour, but as their Lord as well.
There are many people who happily claim Jesus as their Saviour, but how many truly accept him as their Lord? As Jesus said on another occasion, “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? (Luke 6:46).
Unlike those two blind men, are you grateful enough to let Jesus be both Saviour and Lord of your life? After all, Jesus can’t be your Saviour, if he isn’t your Lord as well. – Eliezer Gonzalez
Reflection: Make a list of the key things that Jesus has done for you in your life. With your list, pray a prayer of thanks. Be specific. Ask Jesus to show you an area of your life where he wants you to accept his Lordship.
