Which Sandbox Are You Playing In? (1 of 2)
Matthew 28:18, Philippians 2:8-11, Psalm 85:13, Psalm 1:1-3, Isaiah 61:3
Lordship. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word LORD? Most likely you would be thinking "well, of course, Jesus is Lord." Yes, Jesus is Lord, but the question is, "Is He Your Lord?"
You may be saying to me, "come on Pastor Lenny, I asked Jesus to come into my heart 20 years ago and be the Lord of my life. So ever since that day, He has been Lord."

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth."

JESUS TRULY IS THE LORD. HE IS THE ONE THAT IS WORTHY TO BE WORSHIPED.
2) He is Ruler to whom service and obedience are due.
