It truly is a huge responsibility to live for Jesus. Many people only think about the privileges of Christianity—and they are many!—without considering the duties that we accept when we claim to follow him. Many people want Jesus to be their Savior. Fewer want him to be the Lord of their life.
“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,” and do not do what I say?”—Luke 6:46
