Several guys in the church greet me as “Boss”. Actually in my life right now I don’t really boss anybody. I am technically the boss of the staff at JBC, but they all know what they are doing and have their goals, agendas, and visions, and I don’t tell them what to do very often. I encourage and motivate occasionally in regard to faithfulness and being responsible, but that is about it. I don’t boss my kids or grandkids. Occasionally I will fuss about something to Patty in regards to her driving, but she seldom does anything but smile in response. Nobody bosses me around either. Occasionally someone will make a comment about something that they don’t like, and I usually smile and nod my head.
But Jesus is my boss, my Lord, my master, my King. He is my creator, my savior, my God. Every morning in my “prayer of commitment” among other things I say, “Jesus You are Lord of my life, and today I will obey You, I will do what you want no matter how difficult or hard it might be”.
1 Corinthians 12:3 Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
John 15:14 “You are My friends if you do what I command you.
Luke 6:46 “Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
A very good question to ask ourselves and answer accurately and with no self-deception is, “who is my boss?” There is quite a bit riding on the true answer to that question.
