1 Peter 3:13-16
I. The Nature Of Lordship.
II. Three Statements About Lordship.
Vance Havner, “We’ve created an artificial distinction between accessing Christ as Savior and confessing Him as Lord. We’ve made two things out of it. Most people will take the free part – Savior – but won’t take the Lordship part – that costs everything. They think, if I don’t make him Lord, I’ll at least make it to heaven and all I’ll lose is my rewards. Don’t count on it.”

III. The Practical Application Of Lordship.
Augustine, “He values not Christ at all who does not value Christ above all.”
Thomas Brooks, “They do not love Christ who love anything more than Christ.”
A. Lindsay Gregg, “You can not have the gifts of Christ apart from the government of Christ.”
Michael Catt, “To imply that Lordship is optional equipment in the Christian life is as ludicrous as saying tires and an engine are optional in a car. Lordship is the life, power and authority we need to make our lives run as God intended.”
