-->"Is Christ divided?..." 1 Corinthians 1:13a
So many people want Jesus as Savior but are not willing to follow Him as Lord. They want Him to save them from their sins. They want "fire insurance" from hell. They want to have the "membership card" that says they are a Christian so they can go to heaven. Well, it doesn't work that way.
Jesus is not divided. You can't "compartmentalize" Him. He is not Savior and also Lord. He is Lord and Savior. (He is the Lord who saves.) If you receive Him for one, you receive Him for both. You can't have part of Him and not all of Him.
You say He is your Savior. If He is, then He is also your Lord because He is One not two-- He is not divided. He is not like a dessert table where you can pick and choose what you want and how much you want. He is One-- if you have Him you got Him all.
Are you following Jesus? Are you still the master of your own life, or is He? Are you still calling the shots in your life? Are you doing what you want to do? Are you letting Him lead you? If you say He is your Savior but are not following Him as your Lord, then it is very doubtful that He is actually your Savior--- because you can't divide Him. You better check to make sure!
Have a great day. Jesus is not divided. If He is your Savior then He is your Lord also. Is He?
