One Lord. Paul says there is one Lord in Ephesians 4:4-6. What does he mean? What are his implications. A lord is a master. Our lord is whom or what we submit our hearts to in order to be owned. Yes, we are slaves to something or someone as Paul says in Romans 6:16, “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?” The one who owns us is the one we submit to. It may be power or money or popularity or influence or a job. It may be a false god such as Allah. Yet, there is one who has given His life on a cross, shed His own blood to reconcile us to the creator of all against whom we have all sinned (transgressed), 1 Peter 1:18-19. Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:24 that “No one can serve two masters.” What master is worth serving and being owned by? The one who has bought us with a price, 1 Corinthians 6:20. Jesus is the one to whom we should submit because He loved us and gave Himself for us, Ephesians 5:25, thus paying the ransom for us and buying us. It is through Jesus that we have salvation from sin and eternal life. Look unto Him.
