Jesus Christ is Lord.

Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:11).

If Jesus was only a great teacher, we would do our best to follow his teachings. If he was only a great example, we would do our best to live up to the example he has set for us. Here, Paul tells us that Jesus is nuch more than a great teacher, and he is much more than a great example. “Jesus Christ is Lord”: this is what Paul says to us. We’re not suggesting that his teachings and example are unimportant. We are to follow his teachings and his example, but that’s not because that’s all that he is: a great teacher and a great example. It’s because he’s our Lord.
