Lordship Salvation

Those who call Jesus as their Savior will also submit to Him as Lord (John 14:15, Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:36).   People who love God are not going to hold onto the sinful patterns of their lives.  The Lordship debate comes as a controversial subject because people feel that it promotes a works based salvation.  However, our works does not add to our salvation.  Our salvation was already accomplished by the works of Jesus on the cross.  Living a life of following Jesus comes as a reflection of worship to God (Romans 12:1).  Those who are saved are going to love God and reflect a life of obedience onto God because of the Holy Spirit who lives in them (Romans 8:9, James 2:14-26, Ephesians 2:8-10).
