Lesson 6—The Lordship of Christ. The title of Lord is given to Jesus Christ throughout the Scriptures. God gave Him the name above all other names. God also placed everything under His authority.

But we yield our lives and desire to serve the Lord because we are saved.

The wheel illustrates this Christ-centered life. Just as the driving force in a wheel comes from the hub so the power to live the Christian life comes from Jesus Christ as the center.
He lives in us in the person of the Holy Spirit, whose expressed purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ. We maintain personal contact with God through the vertical spokes Word and Prayer. The Word is our spiritual food as well as our sword for spiritual battle. It is the foundational spoke for effective Christian living. Through the spoke of Prayer we have direct communication with our heavenly Father and receive provision for our needs.
As we pray we show our dependence upon and trust in Him. The horizontal spokes concern our relationship to people; our relationship to believers through Christian fellowship, and to unbelievers through witnessing. Fellowship centered around the Lord Jesus Christ provides the mutual encouragement, admonition and stimulation we all need. The first three spokes prepare us for passing on to others all that we have received from the Lord.
If a wheel would attempt to roll down the road with one or more spokes missing it would be in for quite a rough and bumpy ride. But a wheel that has all four spokes securely attached to the hub will have a much smoother ride.
