Heavenly Father,
We recognize Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords. We believe this is true and we acknowledge His authority in our lives. Yet our world does not recognize Christ's authority. Indeed, many actively oppose His authority on their lives. And… this fleshly mindset has also affected many Christians, who believe Jesus is their Savior, but not their Lord. As we study this lesson today, may we be convinced of the absolute necessity of submitting every aspect of our lives to the authority of Christ.
In Jesus' name.
