A lost person is saved when he recognizes that he is a sinner in need of the Savior.  Romans 10:9 says:  That if you will confess with your mouth THE LORD JESUS, and do believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.  His Lordship is important; for when we place our faith in Him, we are acknowledging that we want to obey Him out of gratitude for what He has done, and will continue to do for us!  The phrase "our Lord Jesus Christ" appears fifty-four times in the New Testament; here are just a few of them:

*  Acts 20:21 - Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
*  Romans 5:1 - Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
*  1 Corinthians 15:57 - But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
*  2 Corinthians 8:9 - For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might be rich.
*  Galatians 1:3 - Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ!
*  Ephesians 5:20 - Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
*  Philippians 5:23 -  The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
*  Colossians 1:3 - We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you!
*  1 Thessalonians 5:9 - For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ!
*  2 Thessalonians 3:6 - Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
*  1 Timothy 6:14 - That you keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ!
*  Philemon 1:25 - The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.  Amen.
*  James 2:1 - My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
*  1 Peter 1:3 - Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead!
*  Jude 1:21 - Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
