17.2 What does the Bible say about Jesus as Lord?

Romans 1:1-6

1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God –
2 the gospel He promised beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures
3 regarding His Son, who as to His earthly life was a descendant of David,
4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by His resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.
5 Through Him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for His name’s sake.
6 And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

To reflect on

Consider these six significant statements about Jesus:
  1. Jesus is a descendant of David (v.3)
  1. Jesus was filled with the Spirit of Holiness (v.4)
  1. Jesus received God’s power (v.4)
  1. Jesus rose from the dead and is alive (v.4)
  1. Jesus is God’s Son (vv.3 and 4)
  1. Jesus is our Lord (v.4)

How do these statements build towards their summary: “Jesus Christ our Lord”?
Is this a saying that people often read or repeat in church?

Or is it a declaration of intent, full of personal meaning – Jesus Christ our Lord! Jesus Christ my Lord!

How do you say it?
