"I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do."
- Acts 9:5,6
 
Accepting Jesus as our Savior implies submitting to His lordship for the rest of our lives.  The Bible says, "if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" Notice that the name "Jesus" which means savior, is preceded by the word "LORD" We are bought with a price, we belong to Him, and He has ownership right on our lives.
