It is the most unpopular of all gospel truths in the days we live, but it must be preached in spite of that because it is His Word. True salvation includes Jesus as Lord, not just Jesus as Savior. It seems everybody wants Him as a Savior, but few want Him as Lord.
If Christ by the Holy Spirit, doesn't influence your life choices, decisions, and the formation of your inner person, you cannot claim Him as Lord. If He is not your Lord, He can not be your Saviour. The Savior Jesus, cannot be separated from the Lord Jesus.
The scripture says, "Believe on the LORD Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved." Many of my preacher colleagues have sacrificed the truth about salvation in exchange for big crowds, big tithers and big titled members. Others have been so loose on this point that people whose occupation is sin (drug dealers, strippers, thieves, professional pimps, prostitutes) can sit in the church service every week and not sense the conviction of the Holy Spirit. They can sit so nonchalantly, with out the conviction of the Holy Spirit on their sin, ungodly lifestyle or hellish activities because the truth of salvation has been so profoundly compromised it is unrecognizable.
Can we simply agree, on this one timeless bible truth, 'No Savior, No Lord!" "No Lord, No Savior!"
Without condenming anyone's salvation, I ask you, don't you think its time for a "SALVATION REALITY CHECK!"?
