Calling Jesus "Lord" isn't likely to turn many heads today. We use "Lord" in our prayers and sermons almost without thinking about it.

From a small town mayor all the way up to the most powerful of world leaders, there are advisors who counsel public-office holders to help minimize potential damage to their career. The Bible records a scenario in which a King does not heed the counsel of one of His closest confidants, and as a result, the King paid with His life. Who was that King? Why didn’t He listen to the one who counselled Him? What was the scandal that the King’s friend was desperately trying to avoid? From the series The Majesty of Christ

Dr. Sproul refers to many New Testament scriptures that give us confidence that God is going to preserve us and bring our work of redemption to its completion in heaven.
