From Lord, I Agree:

One of Satan's greatest triumphs has been his magnificent success in getting people to believe they can be saved from hell without being saved from their sin and themselves. Multitudes are depending upon Jesus as a fire escape from eternal torment who have no concious intention of yielding themselves to His Lordship or of walking in daily obedience to Him. They strangely suppose they can have Jesus as their Saviour while rejecting Him as their Lord. They desire to be citizens of His kingdom while rejecting His kingship. they seek to grasp the kingdom of heaven with one hand while the other hand is hanging on to the kingdom of this world. Forgetful of Matthew 6:24 ("No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other; ye cannot serve God and mammon.") they make Gospel out of nonsense and substitute the deception of Satan for the truth of God. Sadly, such persons belong to the kingdom of words rather than the kingdom of power.

Reviving believer, Jesus Christ is Lord! This must be believed! This must be yielded to! This must be acted upon! Failure here is failure everywhere!
