Lord of Your Life EGP Blog post from September 3, 2012

The word “lord” means “one possessing great power; to exercise authority over, restrain, regulate, and direct.” Therefore, whatever rules over (i.e., controls) is lord. Money, career, possessions, loved ones, time, fitness, and religion are just a few examples of what can be lord of one’s life.

It is our responsibility as Christians to let Jesus be Lord of everything in our lives. Colossians 3:17 states, “Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.”
