One week after Jesus' resurrection, Thomas was with the disciples. Jesus appeared to them and invited Thomas to test the evidence. Thomas replied, "My Lord and My God." That Jesus is Lord means that Jesus is the One Who 1) Controls all things, 2) Was Crowned with Glory and Honor, and 3) Commands my Allegiance. With this sermon each hearer should understand the significance of the fact that Jesus is Lord and that we live by this fact each day.
