Best Lordship Quotes

  1. “When Jesus is truly our Lord, He directs our lives and we gladly obey Him. Indeed, we bring every part of our lives under His lordship – our home and family, our sexuality and marriage, our job or unemployment, our money and possessions, our ambitions and recreations.” ~ John Stott
  2. “If God is the Creator of the entire universe, then it must follow that He is the Lord of the whole universe. No part of the world is outside of His lordship. That means that no part of my life must be outside of His lordship.” ~ R. C. Sproul
  3. “You don’t make Him Lord. He’s Lord already. You just recognize it.” ~ Adrian Rogers
  4. “That’s what lordship is – Christ reigning as supreme authority over our life. Making Jesus Lord of our life is not something passive. It’s not a state of being, it’s a state of doing. Those whom Jesus recognizes as His own are those who do the will of His Father in heaven.” ~ Keith Green
  5. “Christianity is not a cafeteria line where you say, “I’ll have a little salvation, but no Lordship right now.” ~ Adrian Rogers

  6. “The Lordship of Jesus Christ is not quite forgotten among Christians, but it has been relegated to the hymnal where all responsibility toward it may be comfortably discharged in a glow of religious emotion. Or if it is taught as a theory in the classroom it is rarely applied to practical living. The idea that the Man Christ Jesus has absolute final authority over the whole church and over its members in every detail of their lives is simply not now accepted as true by the rank and file of evangelical Christians.” ~ Aiden Wilson Tozer
  7. “The founding document of the United States of America acknowledges the Lordship of Jesus Christ because we are a Christian nation.” ~ Pat Robertson

  10. “The irony of New Testament lordship is that only in slavery to Christ can a man discover authentic freedom.” ~ R. C. Sproul

  11. “God is sovereign, that is He is the boss. He is in control. He is the supreme ruler of heaven and earth for all of eternity. He is Lord. We don’t make Him Lord. He is Lord. And joy comes when we acknowledge that He is Lord; we rest in His Lordship. We trust His sovereignty, and we surrender to it. That means that God has the right to give, and God has the right to take away.” ~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss
  12. “Revelation is the first step to holiness, and consecration is the second. A day must come in our lives, as definite as the day of our conversion, when we give up all right to ourselves and submit to the absolute Lordship of Jesus Christ.” ~ Watchman Nee
  13. “Christ’s lordship is a blessed hope for some & a terrifying nightmare for others. Regardless of our response, it is an unalterable reality.” ~ Paul Washer
  14. “When a man comes under the blood of Christ, his whole capacity as a man is refashioned. His soul is saved, yes, but so are his mind and his body. True spirituality means the lordship of Christ over the total man.” ~ Francis Schaeffer
  15. “A kingdom man is a man who visibly demonstrates the comprehensive rule of God underneath the Lordship of Jesus Christ in every area of his life.” ~ Tony Evans

  16. “It is time for us to seek again the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Man’s lordship has cost us too much.” ~ Aiden Wilson Tozer
  17. “This is the essence of Kingdom Authority. Fathers can have no authority in the home until they have surrendered to the headship of Jesus. Mothers cannot pray with authority for their children when they have no submissive spirit to their own husbands. Pastors cannot lead, teach, or preach with anointing and supernatural power without being fully broken and surrendered to the lordship of Christ, the authority of the Word, and the commands of the Spirit.” ~ Adrian Rogers

  19. “He rules all things, not as the world soul but as the lord of all. And because of his dominion he is called Lord God Pantokrator”. For “god” is a relative word and has reference to servants, and godhood is the lordship of God, not over his own body “as is supposed by those for whom God is the world soul’, but over servants.” ~ Isaac Newton
  20. “Christ’s resurrection doesn’t mean escaping from the world; it means mission to the world based on Jesus’s lordship over the world.” ~ N. T. Wright

  24. “Jesus is now the Lord; He is enthroned at the right hand of God; He is reigning in His kingdom. But this is a Lordship and a kingly reign which is known only to believers. It must be confessed by faith. His Second Coming will mean nothing less than the Lordship which is His now will be visible to all the world. When we pray, ‘Thy kingdom come,’ this is what we are praying for: the effectual and universal rule of Christ in all the world, not only over believers.” ~ George Eldon Ladd

  27. “To control the future requires the control of education and of the child. Hence, for Christians to tolerate statist education, or to allow their children to be trained thereby, means to renounce power in society, to renounce their children, and to deny Christ’s Lordship over all of life.” ~ R.J. Rushdoony
  28. “I realized that I had granted my illness lordship over me. In viewing my depression as a despot subjecting me to its savage fancies, I was able to escape responsibility, to indulge fully my selfish desire to let my ego flourish unfettered, not obliged to anyone. But this wasn’t freedom. It was a prison-a cell separating me from those who cared for me and for whom I might have cared.” ~ Eric G. Wilson
  29. “But his Lordship [tells]us that God is wholly here, and wholly there, and wholly every where; because he has no parts. I cannot comprehend nor conceive this. For methinks it implies also that the whole world is also in the whole God, and in every part of God. Norcan I find anything of this in the Scripture. If I could find it there, I could believe it; and if I could find it in the public doctrine of the Church, I could easily abstain from contradicting it.” ~ Thomas Hobbes
  30. “Some smack of age in you, some relish of the saltness of time.” ~ William Shakespeare

  31. “The lordship of man over man is the root cause of all corrupt rule. In the light of this principle, no laws are legitimate except God’s law, and no government is legitimate except those who rule as God’s deputies, implementing God’s laws alone, which no-one has the power to change. So I say to you: if you really want to root out corruption now so widespread on God’s earth, stand up and fight against corrupt rule; take power and use it on God’s behalf. It is useless to think you change things by preaching alone.” ~ Abul A’la Maududi
  32. “As evangelical Christians we have tended to relegate art to the very fringe of life. The rest of human life we feel is more important. Despite our constant talk about the Lordship of Christ, we have narrowed its scope to a very small area of reality.” ~ Francis Schaeffer
  33. “Why were you in a vehicle with Kate, alone? What were you wearing? What was she wearing? How long were you there? Did you do something or did you talk? What was the nature of your discussion? Could this trip have been avoided?” I rubbed my face. “So basically you’re scared that His Lordship might get his panties in a bunch?” “That’s one way to put it.” ~ Ilona Andrews
  34. “The only method of restoring the natural equality of dignity between men and women, lies in the demolishment of that elaborate theological structure which maintains that woman is made for the possession of man in a sense in which man is not made for woman, and that celibacy, per se, is a state of superior purity. Nature and common sense (not metaphysical sense) demonstrate that there is no good reason why any man or any woman should take, claim, or wield “lordship” over another.” ~ Ellen Battelle Dietrick
  35. “If you practice inaction, nothing will be left undone: For the way to acquire lordship over society is by invariably not interfering.” ~ Laozi

  36. “The ‘lords of the earth’ are those who are doing their Will. It does not necessarily mean people with coronets and automobiles; there are plenty of such people who are the most sorrowful slaves in the world. The sole test of one’s lordship is to know what one’s true Will is, and to do it.” ~ Aleister Crowley
  37. “It has always seemed to me that if one falls in love with any gentleman one becomes instantly blind to his faults.But I am not blind to your faults, and I do not think that everything you do or say is right! Only—Is it being—not very comfortable—and cross—and not quite happy, when you aren’t there?” “That, my darling,” said his lordship,taking her ruthlessly into his arms,“is exactly what it s!” “Oh—!” Frederica gasped, as she emerged from an embrace which threatened to suffocate her. “Now I know! I am in love!” ~ Georgette Heyer
  38. “Miss Grantham’s sense of humour got the better of her at this point, and, tottering towards a chair, she sank into it, exclaiming in tragic accents:’Oh Heavens! I am betrayed!’ His lordship blenched; both he and miss Laxton regarded her with guilty dismay. Miss Grantham buried her face in her handkerchief, and uttered one shattering word: ‘Wretch!” ~ Georgette Heyer
  39. “If God bestowed immortality on every man then when he made him, and he made many to whom he never purposed to give his saving grace, what did his Lordship think that God gave any man immortality with purpose only to make him capable of immortal torments? It is a hard saying, and I think cannot piously be believed. I am sure it can never be proved by the canonical Scripture.” ~ Thomas Hobbes
  40. “An ancient prophecy … pronounced, That the castle and lordship of Otranto should pass from the present family, whenever the real owner should be grown too large to inhabit it!” ~ Horace Walpole

  41. “And from true lordship it follows that the true God is living, intelligent, and powerful; from the other perfections, that he is supreme, or supremely perfect. He is eternal and infinite, omnipotent and omniscient; that is, he endures from eternity to eternity; and he is present from infinity to infinity; he rules all things, and he knows all things that happen or can happen.” ~ Isaac Newton
  42. “But an escape less self-depreciating was taken by Lord Westbury, who, it is said, rebuffed a barrister’s reliance upon an earlier opinion of his Lordship: “I can only say that I am amazed that a man of my intelligence should have been guilty of giving such an opinion”. If there are other ways of gracefully and good-naturedly surrendering former views to a better considered position, I invoke them all.” ~ Robert H. Jackson
  43. “It may happen that the enemies of Islam may consider it expedient not to take any action against Islam, if Islam leaves them alone in their geographical boundaries to continue the lordship of some men over others and does not extend its message and its declaration of universal freedom within their domain. But Islam cannot agree to this unless they submit to its authority by paying Jizyah, which will be a guarantee that they have opened their doors for the preaching of Islam and will not put any obstacle in its way through the power of the state.” ~ Sayyid Qutb
  44. “It has been said that the people of this country are deeply interested in the humanitarian and philanthropic considerations involved in [the Eastern Question]. All must appreciate such feelings. But I am mistaken if there be not a yet deeper sentiment on the part of the people of this country, one with which I cannot doubt your lordships will ever sympathise, and that is – the determination to maintain the Empire of England.” ~ Benjamin Disraeli
  45. “His lordship can eat my fat—” ~ Gail Carriger

Know, O man, that the covenant of servanthood is incumbent upon you, and that the covenant of Lordship is incumbent upon His magnanimity, as He Most High has said, “. . . and fulfill your covenant, I shall fulfill My covenant.”” ~ Ibn Ata Allah
  47. “Rule 1, on page I of the book of war, is: “Do not march on Moscow”. Various people have tried it, Napoleon and Hitler, and it is no good. That is the first rule. I do not know whether your Lordships will know Rule 2 of war. It is: “Do not go fighting with your land armies in China”. It is a vast country, with no clearly defined objectives…” ~ Bernard Law Montgomery

Schuller

I do, sometimes—not frequently, of course, but every now and then!” ~ Georgette Heyer
  52. “I think it’s for me with regards to this issue I believe in justification at the point of salvation; I believe in sanctification at the point of salvation. That doesn’t mean that we don’t continue to mature as believers in Christ. But I believe that we are justified and we are sanctified. But sin resides, the power of sin resides in our flesh. It will always try us and it was always tempt us and therefore we always need to be submitting our mind, will and emotions to the lordship of Jesus Christ.” ~ Alan Chambers
  53. “…we must all offer up a hymn of praise to the God… who is ‘Lord of lords’ (Deut. 10:17, Ps. 136:1, I Tim. 6:15, Rev. 17:14, 19:16)… Lordship is not simply a matter of being superior with respect to inferiors but a complete possession of all that is beautiful and good, and is furthermore a true and unshakable stability.” ~ Pope Dionysius

His lordship of Aubigny, staring after the vanishing form of his brother, received the full splendour of Lymond’s smile. ‘It was a cuckoo,’ said Francis Crawford prosaically, and followed Lennox out.” ~ Dorothy Dunnett
  56. “Sir Thomas More was a victim of injustice and irony. Generously and meekly, just as he was about to be martyred, he said: Paul . . . was present, and consented to the death of St. Stephen, and kept their clothes that stoned him to death, and yet be they [Stephen and Paul] now both twain Holy Saints in heaven, and shall continue there friends for ever, so I verily trust and . . . pray, that though your lordships have now here in earth been judges to my condemnation, we may yet hereafter in heaven merrily all meet together, to our everlasting salvation.” ~ Neal A. Maxwell
  57. “I mean by the universe, the aggregate of all things that have being in themselves; and so do all men else.

  58. “Though the Negroes are fed, clothed, and housed, and though the Irish peasant is starved, naked, and roofless, the bare name of freemen-the lordship over his own person, the power to choose and will-are blessings beyond food, raiment, or shelter; possessing which, the want of every comfort of life is yet more tolerable than their fullest enjoyment without them.” ~ Fanny Kemble

  65. “God’s ways do not change… Still he shows his freedom and lordship by discriminating between sinners, causing some to hear the gospel while others do not hear it, and moving some of those who hear it to repentance while leaving others in their unbelief, thus teaching his saints that hew owes mercy to none and that it is entirely of his grace, not at all through their own effort, that they themselves have found life.” ~ J. I. Packer
