Is Jesus Enough? This question hit me like a runaway freight train. I was just minding my own business and whamo - slamo I'm hit with this. Well, minding my own business is a stretch for me on any day. I was working through my next book. Plodding through chapter synopses, rewriting the overview, and plotting the structure when the question hit --
Is Jesus Enough?My knee jerk is to say OF COURSE He is!! Because He is. But then I started looking at my life. I began to look at all the blessings surrounding me. I looked around at the incredible ministry opportunities I've had and that I have. I was in awe of a God who would use me! But if all that went away tomorrow -- Is Jesus enough? The last few months have been tough ones in my speaking / teaching ministry. I've not had any new bookings in some time. It makes me question my calling -- for a moment and then I remember He called me. But what if I never speak to another group again -- is Jesus enough? I rolled that question around in my head for quite some time. I pondered it, prayed over it and just thought about it. Is Jesus enough? If I'm never inside a circle of close friends again -- but I have Jesus, is that enough? If I never write another book, article or even blog post or facebook status -- but I have Jesus, is that enough? If everything stops today. All ministry. All small groups. All friendships. All family. And it's just me and Jesus. Is that enough? As I tossed this question around, I knew I wanted the answer to be 'yes, He alone is enough.' But I also knew I had to figure out if this is a truth in my life. For much of my life I've said and done what is popular or accepted. This time I needed to know only truth. Not the popular, cool, Christian answer. I had to know truth! Was it enough to just be me and Jesus? Would I be okay with that? Would I survive and thrive with just Jesus and no more? After hours of pondering, I can say YES! He is enough. So I ask you the same question I asked myself - Is Jesus Enough?
