Since before the beginning of time Jesus has been Lord over all things and will remain so even when history as we know it comes to an end. He was there when creation came into being — which He brought into being — and will be there long after this world has passed away in accordance with His will. He holds the keys to Heaven and Hell and He sits in judgment of all who have lived, are alive, or will be alive and decides who will join Him in His eternal kingdom and who will not. When we forget all this, we forget Jesus is Lord and we set ourselves up for eternal heartbreak, because while Jesus is Lord, there is one thing He cannot do and that is make us accept Him as our Savior. Only we can do that, and if we choose not to do so in this life, then in the next life we will hear Him tells us to depart from Him, that He never knew us. So resolve this year, this day, this minute, to acknowledge Jesus as Lord and accept Him as your Savior, because to choose otherwise is the ultimate form of foolishness.
