“And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”…. “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Acts 9:5-6
“And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”…. “Lord, what do You want me to do?”
Receiving Jesus as our Savior from sin brings us into a life-changing relationship with the Son of God. Although we may not know at the time all the far reaching implications of our commit- ment to Him, we cannot escape the fact that as God, He has a right to be Lord of every area of our lives. Sooner or later we must come to that point where we confess, in the words of Thomas, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28).
In Saul’s conversion experience, he recognized Jesus as both Savior and Lord. When Saul heard Jesus’ voice on the Damascus highway, he asked this crucial question: “Who are You, Lord?” From the answer, “I am Jesus,” Paul instantly realized that the One he had been persecuting truly was the Savior. In that moment he cast himself on His mercy. Trembling in the divine pres- ence, he asked a second crucial question, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” He was, as Oswald Chambers puts it, “giving up his right to himself.”
In Jeremiah 18: 16, when the vessel was marred in the hand of the potter, Jeremiah saw him crush it and make another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. If you have failed to cooperate with the divine Potter, it is not too late for you to be made into a useful vessel if you will yield to him and let His will be your will in all ways. Let Him be your Lord and not just Saviour.
Dear friend, you’ve trusted Jesus as your Saviour, you’ve settled the issue of who He is, but have you asked that second crucial question, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Say to Him today, “Lord, I’ll do whatever You ask.”
