God’s Holy Fire: ‘Jesus Is Lord’
Saturday, October 17, 2020
So I want you to know that no one speaking by the Spirit of God will curse Jesus, and no one can say Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit.
As we think of God as Father, Son, and Spirit, our minds quickly become overwhelmed. God is greater than our greatest thought and is more complex than our most insightful moment can help us comprehend. But there is a truth that I believe we can all understand. The Spirit will never lead us to say anything untruthful or unholy about God — as Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God convicts us of the truth, gives us insight into the truth, and empowers us to declare the truth. To be able to confess Christ as Lord with a heart full of faith is a declaration of our commitment and is also testimony to God’s grace. The Holy Spirit unlocks our minds and empowers our hearts to confess Jesus as Lord!
Father in heaven, because of your grace and the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus, I confidently confess that Jesus is Lord. Jesus is Lord of all things, seen and unseen, and I want him to be Lord of my heart as I seek to live the lifestyle of your Kingdom. I know my ability to submit to you and truly live as your disciple comes as a gift through your grace and the leading of the blessed Holy Spirit. I offer you — Father, Son, and Spirit — my thanks! Amen.

2 Surely you have heard about the administration of God’s grace that was given to me for you, 3 that is, the mystery made known to me by revelation as I have already written briefly. 4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5 which was not made known to people in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God’s holy apostles and prophets 6 This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirsm together with Israel, members together of one body,n and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus
7 I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power 8 Although I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people,s this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentilest the boundless riches of Christ,u
