The basic Christian confession is quite simple. “Jesus is Lord” (Romans 10:9). Jesus Christ is the King and Sovereign the Bible calls us to serve. We must implement His law of love in all of life. “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another” (John 13:34).
According to the Bible, this confession is no fantasy. Hundreds of years before Jesus walked the dusty trails of Galilee, King David prophesied, “The Lord says to my Lord: ‘Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet’” (Psalm 110:1). Peter interprets the Psalm. “It was not David who ascended into heaven, but he himself says: ‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.’” Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ this Jesus whom you crucified” (Acts 2:34-36).
Hebrews 1:3 declares of Christ, “When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.” Paul teaches, “He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet” (1 Corinthians 15:25). Jesus, therefore, asks, “What do you think about the Christ?” (Matthew 22:42).
