Discipleship - Who Is Jesus to You?

People relate with Jesus in one of these three ways:
1) Jesus as guest - He owns nothing and He is expected to leave.
  • There is no Lordship. We still own and control everything.
  • Jesus is welcomed in to our lives sporadically. He is expected to leave after the pleasantries.
  • Relationship with Jesus is one of convenience.
2) Jesus as roommate - There are clear boundaries.
  • Issues with Lordship.
  • Jesus is viewed as friend, but not as Lord.
  • Jesus is Savior, but not Lord.
  • There are areas of life that is still off-limits for Jesus.
3) Jesus as King, Lord, and Savior - He owns everything.
  • Jesus is Lord and Savior.
  • Jesus owns everything.
  • We commit ourselves, our time, talents, and finances to the things that God is committed to.
So which best describes you?
