With the new year comes resolutions. Often these are based on things we want to see changed. If we’re not careful they can become self centered: “What I’m going to accomplish for myself”. A good question as we start the new year is: How can I glorify God this next year?
Think for a moment about super hero movies. There’s a good guy, a bad guy, and someone the bad guy is trying to hurt. The good guy “saves” the person from the bad guy. We understand the concept of a savior. But the word Lord means something else. It means that someone has complete ownership rights to your life.
Is Jesus your Lord?
In Luke 19:1-10 we see Zacchaeus reach a point in his life where he acknowledges Jesus as his Lord.
“Zacchaeus learned the hard way one of the most basic lessons of life: You can be rich and not be happy. You can be wealthy and not be loved. You can be successful and not be satisfied.”
