ACTS 2:36 NIV
Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
“Boss” is a modern meaning of the word “Lord.”
Somebody has to be the boss. Somebody has to make the final decisions. The flesh does not like authority and feels threatened when not in control and so it tries to control us. News flash: there will always be someone in an authoritative position, whether we accept their role as such or not. Which is why the Spirit was so intelligent to remind us to do this key thing:
“I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. This is good and pleases God our Savior,” 1 Timothy 2:1-3 NLT
- Pray for your manager so your time at work is peaceable.
- Parents pray for the administrators and teachers who spend so much time with our children throughout their day and lives.
- Wives, pray for your husbands that they may lead us where God directs.
- Children pray for your parents, that they would train YOU in the way that YOU should go.
- Congregants, pray for your overseers so they remain clear to feed the church of God with HIS word.
- Pray for the President so that we may live quiet and peaceful lives.
- Pray that you can lead someone today and everyday to make JESUS their Lord and Savior!
DON’T FORGET TO PRAY!
Can I tell you? It’s not a hard thing to let Jesus be your boss — in fact, it’s a wonderful privilege.
Jesus knows more than you do. And Jesus loves you more than you have shown love for yourself. If we loved ourselves as we appear to, we would disassociste with anyone or anything that would cause us harm. Instead, we find opportunity to gravitate towards it or them.
However, if we allow Jesus to be Lord over our lives and to call the shots, we would soon learn what we’ve been searching for, was given to us years ago.
Of course, if you choose, you can go your own way and do your own thing. You can try to do the best you can on your own — and then let’s have coffee and see how that’s working out! 👀 I know how it will work it because I had to make a mature decision to ask the Lord to order my steps and be submissive to His principles.
Let me ask you this: If you owned a large important company, who would you rather run the company for you, a brilliant executive with a perfect track record of running many other companies successfully, or someone who has never run a company before?
You have control over something much more important than a company — your life. Who do you want to run it for you? Jesus, with a perfect track record. Jesus, who knows more about the future than you know about the past. Or, yourself?
Without the wise, loving, experienced, guidance of Jesus, you will almost certainly crash in life.
Trust in God and obey Him, and you will not regret it.
Jesus, I choose You to be my boss.
