When Jesus is Not Enough

c. 1632

I stumbled across this article this morning @ storybleed and it resonated deeply for me. In my comfortable western world, even though I love him, is He enough for me? Or do I want more?

My proud arrogant answer is that “Oh, Jesus is enough for me” and people think that I am some kind of super Christian. But I think that the real answer is that sometimes, often times, is “No”.

That answer breaks my heart, just as I am sure that it breaks His. I am so glad that God is faithful, even when we are faithless. (2 Timothy 2:13) It means that I have a long road ahead of me still, learning who this Jesus is. Even though I walk in Victory, I am still very humbled by His greatness. His lordship over everything.

Jesus has my back. I should not worry. Jesus should be my everything, not my other thing.
