Not Lord at all?

What is wrong with this statement?

“Unless Christ Jesus is Lord of all in our lives, He is not Lord at all.”

The statement seems to suggest that Jesus being your Lord is conditional on absolute perfection, but on that basis He could not be your Lord to begin with.

It’s better to say that when He becomes our Lord He sanctifies us progressively in every aspect of our life so that we become progressively conformed to Him, and we become in experience what we already are positionally in Christ.
