The Lordship of Christ

"When Jesus invites sinners, 'Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest,' he immediately adds, 'take my yoke upon you, and learn from me' (Matt. 11:28-29). To come to him includes taking his yoke upon us, being subject to his direction and guidance, learning from him and being obedient to him. If we are unwilling to make such a commitment, then we have not truly placed our trust in him."

Absolutely. Trusting in Christ is so much more than many people think nowadays. If I say a couple of words I'm saved forever, that is so dangerous. But, truly trusting in Christ includes repentance, true faith, and an obedience in which Christ is your everything.
