What is a Christian? - Jesus - Master of the World


Jesus - the Master of the World

When God created the World, He did it so that Jesus Christ would be Master of it. "All things were created through Him (Jesus Christ) and for Him" (Colossians 1:16). Jesus Christ, through His death and resurrection, has become Lord or Master of the whole creation (Philippians 2:10-11). He has therefore, the right to control everything in the world, including the lives of men and women. They should recognize Him as their Master and God. They should worship and obey Him. This is what is meant by the statement "Jesus Christ is Lord". It is believing this and acting on it which makes a person a Christian.

"He said to them, 'Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.' "

Mark 16:15
