Chapter 2 – Lordship & Obedience

Jesus Is Lord

1. What did Peter (one of Jesus’ disciples) proclaim about Jesus? Acts 2:36

  • Lord and Messiah
  • That Jesus is both the lord and the messiah.
  • Jesus is Lord and Messiah
  • That he was both Lord and Christ.

2. What did Paul write about Jesus? Philippians 2:6–11

  • Jesus did not consider himself equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; he made himself nothing by taking ont eh nature of a servant, being made in human likeness; he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross
  • That though Jesus was God, he did not cling on to equality with Him. He gave up his divine privileges and took the position of the slave and was born a human being. When in His human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on the cross. Therefore, God raised him above all others and gave him a name above all names. At the name of Jesus, every knee should bow. Every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the father.
  • Jesus didn’t consider equality with God as something to be exploited.
    He emptied Himself by assuming the form of a servant, becoming human.
    He then humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death on a cross.
    Because of this God exalted Him and gave Him the name above every name.
    Every knee will bow in heaven, earth, and under the earth. Every tongue will confess Jesus as Lord to the glory of God.
  • That he was fully God but came to earth in human form. But has in reality been exalted by God the Father to the point that Jesus’ name is above every name and at it every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.

3. What does Paul say we should do after we receive Jesus? Colossians 2:6

  • Continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness
  • That you must continue to follow the Lord after receiving him.
  • Live in Him.
  • To be rooted and in and to walk in him by faith; abounding in thanksgiving.

4. What did Jesus say was the result of not obeying him? Luke 6:46–49

  • Like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck the house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.
  • That their belief will crumble when troubles and hardship come.
  • It brings destruction.
  • His life fell to ruin.

5. According to Jesus, who will enter the kingdom of heaven? Matthew 7:21–23

  • Only the one who does the will of his father who is in heaven
  • Those who follow the will of the Father will enter heaven.
  • The one who does the will of His Father.
  • Only those who obey the will of the Father.

What did you learn from this lesson? How will you apply it to your life?

  • We need to do the will of God and it=on tinge to live in Him.
    This lesson reaffirmed my belief that those that enter heaven do not get there based purely on actions, but also on relationship and willingness to do God’s will.
  • I would apply this to my life by listening to God first, and following what He says to lead me into what He wants me to do.
    Jesus is Lord. He came into the world to save humanity. He sacrificed Himself for all and because of it God has exalted Him and His Name.
    Not obeying Him brings destruction. Instead, we should obey and live in Him. Those who do His father’s will may enter heaven.
  • I will continue studying to see what Jesus commanded and set my will to obey.
  • The simple yet vital importance of faith in Christ, of obeying God, and recognizing who Jesus is in all of his glory.
