Lord Street, Liverpool - Old and New

Lord Street, Liverpool. 

Lord Street is one of the main streets in central LiverpoolEngland that historically formed the city's main shopping district. The street is relatively short at less than 300 metres in length, it joins onto Church Street to the east and James Street alongside Derby Square and the Queen Elizabeth II Law Courts. The majority of land to the south of Lord Street is occupied by the Liverpool One complex, whilst the likes of Cavern Walks and BHS are located on the north side of the street.

Lord Street was named after Lord Molyneux and was originally called Lord Molyneux Street.The title 'Lord' in 21st century Britain reminds us of someone who has been honoured. The Bible states that the Lord Jesus Christ is worthy of honour and praise. This is because he 'suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God', 1 Peter 3:18. The scriptures warn that if we do not bow before God in this life that we will definitely do it in the next  - 'that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father, Phil 2:10,11.

May I remind you that the Lord Jesus Christ 'died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day, according to the scriptures', 1 Corinthians 15:3,4. Would you trust Him and make Him Lord of your life today?
