Lordship, Anyone?

One important point that was brought home to  my heart while preparing for my preaching on the Lordship of Christ from Colossians 1:15-20 last week:

We have no problem with a powerful God who can create universes and thrones and big stuff but we have a problem with a God who demands obedience and encroaches on our personal space. We like the idea that God is good and big and powerful because it benefits us in some ways. What we don’t like is when that God starts demanding obedience from us. Human tendency is to try to get the benefits of God without having to commit to obedience.
