Who’s the Boss?

Usually that is a pretty easy question to answer? But what if someone asked you, “Who’s the Boss of your life?” That would probably leave most of us grasping for an answer. We are so busy living our lives we usually don’t think of things like that. And yet, it is a pretty important question. “Who or what drives you to live as you do?”

 Everyone has a Boss, whether or not we can identify who or what that is. There is someone or something which has the leading influence over all our decisions, plans, actions and conversation. Thinking about it that way, there is no more important question in life than, “Who’s the Boss.”

Jesus Christ was explicitly unequivocal in claiming to be the Boss of each one of our lives. In fact, when he taught his disciples how to pray, the second thing he said they should ask for on a daily basis was that he would be the Boss of their lives. Jesus said his followers were to pray, “Your kingdom come.” What he was saying was, “Let me be the King/Boss of your life, bringing you into my kingdom/family through the forgiveness of sins and then I will rule in your life as your loving Lord, molding you into the person I created you to be.”

Some people chaff at the thought of not being able to be their own boss. But when you know who Jesus is, what he did for us and what he wants for every living person, would you really want to be your own boss? Doesn’t the thought seem ridiculously childish when we think of our embarrassing limitations when it comes to how much control we actually have over what happens as we live and when we die?

If you are interested in some life leadership change, join us for one of our worship services this weekend. You might be surprised what you find!

New worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm; Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
