Oxymorons

An oxymoron is when two words with opposite meanings are joined together, such as:
Act naturally
Found missing
Good grief
Sanitary landfill
Small crowd
“Now, then…”
Civil disobedience
Numb feeling
Unbiased opinion
Jumbo shrimp
Soft rock
Pretty ugly
Only choice
Boxing ring
Liquid gas
Same difference
Tight slacks
Definite maybe
And how about this one …“No, Lord.” It’s an oxymoron to say Jesus is your Lord when you refuse to obey what He says. Jesus said, "And why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:46) 

When you become a disciple of Jesus, you agree to obey Him. So when the Holy Spirit tells you to quit your immoral behavior, clean up your impure mouth, or correct your negative attitude, do you say, “No, Lord” or “Yes, Lord”? He is not your Lord unless you say "Yes" and then follow through with the change.
