Is Jesus just Savior, or is He Lord and Savior?
This is a point I have overlooked. I have internalized it. I have a debt to Rev. Mark D. Roberts on the Hugh Hewitt Show. Roberts remarked on Anne Rice who recently announced her apostasy (or it is a schism?) from Christianity. He suggested that Rice could accept Jesus as Savior but not as Lord. That struck me as a profound observation: We are told to take up the cross and follow Jesus. It is in two parts: carry the cross, and follow Jesus. We are not only the grateful receivers of unmerited salvation and grace, but also his followers.
