Jesus Is Enough

Have you notice how complex and twisted life has become? There are more choices, details, and processes than ever before. Life was much simpler in the past. Consider the simple act of watching television. Years ago there were three or four channels to choose from. Sure, the selection was limited but the shows were great and today are considered classics. Now, there are literally hundreds of channels and frequently nothing worth watching. There are more choices and options, in just about all aspects of life now than ever before, but also more unhappiness and unrest. More does not always mean better. Sooner or later, you learn that less is more, and you finally say "Enough!." As you grow older and wiser you realize you don't really need much in life. Fancy cars, homes, and things are not important. Health, family, friends, and safety matter the most. 

Perhaps you have reached the point where you know that Jesus Christ is enough for your life. If you have, you understand that in Christ you already have all you could ever need. If you haven't, you may be caught up in the allure of worldly things, or things of the flesh. Then enemy of God is skilled at creating a facade of glitz and glamour to attract you and keep you from the One that means more than anything. Set your eyes and heart firmly on the Lord. Ask Him to show you what really matters most. When you do you will know that Jesus Christ is enough for you.

"Watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything." Colossians 2:9-10  The Message

A Letter From Christ

The Bible says you are God’s ambassador. It also says that you are a letter from Christ. You may not realize it, but you are on display representing God in your daily walk. A letter can be eloquent, matter of fact, or a word of encouragement. 

It’s not common to write or receive letters anymore which makes being one even more important. You are uniquely positioned by God to share the Gospel message of hope, love, and grace. 

So, what kind of letter from Christ are you? 

Are you: 

- A short note barely sharing Him? 

- A warning letter preaching without reaching a soul? 

- An unopened letter staying silent in fear of sharing your faith? 

- A love letter sharing Jesus and being a blessing? 

The choice is yours. No matter what though, you are a letter being viewed, and read, by others. 

God is counting on you! Deliver love letters every chance you get and change a life for eternity.

Be Encouraged

It’s easy to become discouraged; especially if you are looking around and spending time in the world. Instead, chose to be encouraged in Christ. When you are in Christ you will experience peace of mind, heart, and soul. No matter what the enemy throws your way, you are sheltered in the protective arms of The Most High. He goes before you and behind you. You are not alone, nor are you powerless. 

Will the enemy shoot arrows of fear, distraction, and confusion your way? Yes, because the enemy wants to discourage you and your walk with Christ. The goal is to have you give up, give in, and call it quits. Don't do it - no matter what stay in Christ. 

Be bold and courageous! Pray in the Spirit and in His will. Utilize the Word and set yourself firm in full confidence that Jesus is fighting your battle. He already is victorious and in all circumstances cares for and stands by you. You are a mighty warrior - a Christian Soldier! Keep marching and waving your spiritual sword. Ready? Set? March!

In the Spirit

Are you praying in the Spirit and hoping for something? It may seem impossible, too big, too difficult even for God to bring to pass. Still, you wait on Him in anticipation. Your faith has you believing and knowing God is in control. 

Don't doubt or despair. Do not fret.Trust that the God of the Armies of Heaven has no constraints or limits. Nothing can stop Him when He acts in your behalf. In Him, all things are possible. The apostle Paul, his very life changed forever when meeting Jesus, reminds us "I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13

See, it is not in your strength, or by your might. It is through Jesus Christ and the Spirit of God. Nothing is eternal until God acts and He acts knowing your prayers, faith, and what is best for you. Let God show you the way. You will be pleasantly surprised; awe struck even. The same God of Abraham, Issac, Jacob, David, Moses, John, Paul, and Luke, is the God of you! He is able and ready. The question is, are you?

"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

 Of all the time you will spend today, of all the places you will be, none will be as perfect and beautiful as the time you spend being still in the presence of God. 

Take the time.
