Kyrios Christos: The Lordship of Jesus Christ Today

Kyrios Christos: The Lordship of Jesus Christ Today June 14, 2015

I wrote this short piece for the Harvard Christian fellowship journal Icthus on Kyrios Christos: The Lordship of Jesus Christ Today.

To profess that Jesus is Lord is to make no empty claim. It is the singular most important confession that a person can make about who Jesus is and about their relationship to Jesus. To identify Jesus as Lord is to state that God the Father has appointed the crucified and risen man, Jesus of Nazareth, as the master and commander of the cosmos. To acknowledge that Jesus is Lord with one’s lips, by surrendering one’s heart, and by bowing (metaphorically or literally) one’s knees, means that one recognizes that Jesus is the ultimate authority over all things. The sun at the center of the theological universe of the New Testament is this: Jesus reigns.
