One Lord!

Ephesians 4:5
One Lord, one faith, one baptism.

The Lordship of Christ is something we don’t think about, or take for granted most days.  Christians call Jesus “Lord” without a second thought.  Yet, the strength of the word is still discernible as soon as we put it in a new context.  Try calling your boss “Lord” or demanding that the children call Dad “Lord.”  Suddenly solemn majestic images of wise and august Solomonic kings or majestic medieval nobles shimmer before our eyes and the incongruity makes us feel silly.  Those images remind us of who our Lord really is.  Today, reflect on the majesty of Jesus the Lord.
