To Be A Christian, by John Robert Stevens
In 1933, when he was fourteen, John Robert Stevens wrote out his deep commitment to Christ in To Be A Christian.
To be a Christian, as I understand Christ, means the acceptance of the absolute authority of Jesus in all of my life. It means that in everything I am and do–when I eat and drink, when I buy and sell, when I work and play, when I read and think–that I look to Jesus as my Master. It means that I enthrone Him as King in my affections; that I subject my friendships to His dominion; that I conduct my business and my intellectual and social life under His inspection and direction. It means that my ruling passion–the passion that shall absorb all other interests shall be to live my whole life under the sovereignty of Jesus. It means that I honor His name above every other name, and place obedience to Him above every other obligation.

The Lordship Of Jesus Christ, by John Robert Stevens, is an excerpt from the introduction to the manual, The Lordship Of Jesus Christ.
The foundation of New Testament revelation is the Lordship of Jesus Christ and our submission to Him. Our lives have their fulfillment under the Lordship of Christ; but living without recognizing Him as Lord, there can be little meaning to our existence…Personal salvation should mean not only the absolution of our sins, but it should indicate a change of allegiancea new Lord and Master.

The Word Made Flesh, by John Robert Stevens
When God wants to speak to the world, He does it through human flesh. Is that a new concept to you? If it is, think about it for a moment. The Bible is the definitive work of God speaking through human vessels to the world. It was spoken and written by men moved by the Holy Spirit, and it is the Word of God manifest in and through human vessels (II Peter 1:21).

This is a short but basic essential revelation of divine order.
