In our Christian circles, we use certain clichés or Christianese buzzwords, as I like to call them. One of these is “Jesus is enough”. We tell each other that “Jesus is enough” and encourage one another with the same.
The bottom line is this, is Jesus really enough?
As shocked readers would scream at their computer screens unanimously with a resounding, “YES!” and wonder if I, the writer, am a heretic, I would challenge each and every one of us to really think about the question and our answers. Really? Is Jesus enough?
Enough to once and for all take away our sins. Enough to give us eternal life. Enough to conquer death. Enough to heal us of all out diseases. Enough to rescue our lives from the pit. Enough to cast out demons. Enough to restore us. Enough to renew our minds. Enough to protect us. Enough to take care of our needs. Enough to give us a sound mind.
The list can go on and on. But, is He all that and more? Is He really enough?
If the answer is yes, then it is a good time for us to take stock of our lives and really look at how we are living to see if our lives truly reflect that Jesus is enough.
Do our lives reflect that Jesus is enough?
And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when Christ[a]had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. ~ Hebrews 10:10-14
What Jesus did was for all time. We have been perfected for all time by Him. If that is the case, is He not enough in every area of our lives, even the areas where scientists say otherwise? If He is enough, and we say that He is enough, then we need to start living lives of faith that reflect this truth. We cannot walk around defeated, but rather, believe on what the Word (Jesus; the Way, the Life and the Truth) says and act on it by faith.
Is He truly enough?
If you say yes, then, walk in the truth of His Word and trust that what He said, He will do. It is not about Jesus and (the embellishment from our human minds) , it is about Jesus. Full stop. Period. No other embellishments. Because the Word says that He is enough.
