Still reflecting on yesterday in church and the start of our new series – The Jesus Lifestyle and the question of how to be happy. Truly happy.
Now this might be overly simplistic but as we pursue happiness in lots of different places how about we just take a moment and ask ourselves an important question – is Jesus enough? Yes He is, I hear you cry. Yet something niggles me. I know we sing about Jesus, maybe we even Facebook about Jesus, but in all honesty, do we really mean it when we say Jesus is enough.
The Jesus Lifestyle is impossible without Jesus and without the Holy Spirit to help us, so I don’t think it’s a daft question, we drift very easily from what we say is the most important person in our lives. Actions and choices speak louder than anything else.
If you didn’t have what you have would Jesus still be enough?
If you never have anymore than you have right now would Jesus still be enough?
If you were nudged by God to give away some or all that you have would Jesus still be enough?
Let’s be honest. This is such a fundamental question to chew over. Make time to reflect and be willing to make any changes that need to be made. When we determine that Jesus is enough then we are building the foundation for our lives. saying yes and no to other stuff becomes much easier. We have created some boundaries for all aspects of our lives. I don’t think it can any better than that.
What do you think?
