Do You “Make” Christ the Lord?

Here’s an excerpt from one of my favorite books of all time:

Scripture never speaks of anyone “making” Christ Lord, except God Himself, who “has made Him both Lord and Christ” (Acts 2:36). He is Lord of all (Rom. 14:9; Phil. 2:11), and the biblical mandate is not to “make” Christ Lord, but rather to bow to His lordship (John MacArthur, The Gospel According to Jesus [Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2008], 226).

That statement is diametrically opposed to much of our gospel presentations today. That’s right. You don’t make Christ the Lord; he already is!
