“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2
Corinthians 12:9).

We often see the slogan, “You are enough.” It is meant to give people a boost of self- confidence to know they don’t need to pretend to be more than who they are. It most likely comes from a good place but is fundamentally flawed. As humans, we are NOT enough. We may find temporary security in self-affirmations or the attention of those around us. Yet, we cannot “rescue” ourselves and provide the salvation and enduring hope that Jesus offers.

Jesus’ sacrifice at the cross paid a debt we could not pay. He made a way for us to be united with God. HE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH. No one and nothing else could add to what Christ did for us in our salvation. “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). He carried our sins and finished the work on the cross alone. “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit” (John 19:30).

What Jesus did was enough to save us and give us eternal life, if we choose to accept him into our hearts, turn from our sins, and follow Him.

Life is better with Jesus! He can supply every need we have. He is the ONLY one who can. He can save, equip, bless, and strengthen us. Our supreme faith in Him means we trust in His sufficiency to sustain us.

Paul said in Ephesians 1:3, “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.” He didn’t say only a few blessings or one now and then. He said, “EVERY” spiritual blessing comes from Him! God provided us with more than enough through Jesus Christ, our Lord. “He is the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

Guiding Points:

Call to Action: When has Jesus been more than enough for you? Read these scriptures and thank God for all He has done in your life!

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

“For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy” (Hebrews 10:14).

“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3).

Prayer: Father God, we thank You today for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to this earth to walk among us. You provided a way for Him to take away our sins and save us. We want to be consumed by Your Spirit and Your grace. Your mercy never fails us. You’re so good to us, God. Please continue to work in our lives and remind us to lean into You and You will be here for us. In Your holy name, we pray, Amen.

Final Thought: Jesus has stuck closer than any friend to us. He is forever faithful. He is MORE than ENOUGH!

Jesus Is More Than Enough

Responding to the Call: Embracing Jesus as Our King

“The righteous cry, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:17-19).

Focus on the Fruits! PATIENCE

“But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
