Christ the Lord
The title of my message this morning is simply this, ''Christ the Lord.'' I think if you were to say to me, ''Adrian I'm going to cut out your tongue, and before you have your tongue cut out, is there anything that you'd like to say? Remember you can only say one sentence.'' You know what I think I'd want to say? ''Jesus Christ is Lord.'' That's what I think I'd want to say.

So, let me hasten on to the second question. Have you crowned Him Lord? Now don't answer that lightly or carelessly. Have you crowned Him Lord? When I say that I mean is He Lord of all that you are, all that you have, all that you do? Is He? Are you thinking? Don't let this just go over your head. Is he the Lord of your tongue?
