Is Jesus Enough For You? This Is What I Believe and I Don't Believe I Am Wrong On This. I Think We Have All Dealt With This.

“After they had eaten, Jesus asked Simon Peter, ‘Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these other things?'” (John 21:15). 

I believe that we were born into this world with a void, a void that is innate in each of us; a void that God created in each of us. Why? Because there is only one way that void can be filled and complete and that is through Jesus Christ. Here is one definition of void: Completely empty. So we enter into this world completely empty.
The problem is humanity ignores this hole and attempts to fill it with things other than God. Jeremiah 17:9 describes the condition of our hearts:

"The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?"Sadly, too many try to find meaning in themselves or from their worldly lives. 

This God-shaped hole inside each of us can only be filled by a personal relationship with Him through faith in Jesus-Christ.

As we mature and grow into the development of adolescents and adults we seek out ways to fill this void. I call them faulty sheltersWhen we try to fill a void during trials it is easy to fall into a faulty shelter.  A faulty shelter does not really help us, but it offers a false sense of comfort or security.  False shelters can be found in drinking, smoking, food, hobbies, gambling, sexual immorality, physical & mental abuse, pain killers / self medication and habits.   In commercial buildings there are emergency routes that lead to safety, they are normally marked in red.  In the New Testament, Jesus’ words are written in red.  His words will guide and lead to His shelter.

You see we fill that void with worldly things, we try to fill it with everything else but Jesus Christ, and nothing else will work. This is why we hear so much of suicides and depression, because nothing else is working, money won't fill it, we see rich celebrities who have taken their lives, then we see others who have nothing take their lives. People are in a state of depression, so we medicate ourselves. Only Jesus can bring you out. 

Ecclesiastes 3:11 refers to it as God placing the notion of "eternity in man's heart." As God has made humanity for this eternal purpose, He's the only one who can fulfill our desire for eternity.

When we hurt, it's not uncommon to look for ways to fill our void. As much as we hurt, we shouldn't fear the void because that's where miracles, strength and changes are born. Distracting ourselves from feeling our void shows that we're not WHOLE. Something is missing, damaged or broken and until we face it, no person or thing will ever make us feel complete; only Jesus Christ.

We've been given a void by God to go back to Him to live fully in His presence, sheltered by His unconditional love and security. Peace can reign in our hearts in the midst of storms as Christ can calm our seas...

Jesus prayer just before His death for us was that we would be one with the Father just as He was one with Him and if this is possible and we have bodies designed to house not just our spirit but also the most high God, then we must have a void in us that can only be satisfied when God takes up residence on the secret inner throne of our lives.

When someone has never prayed in their lives it's great to teach them how to pray and when they believe these are great Scriptures to share with them that Christ does indeed dwell in our hearts in response to the prayer of faith which is as simple as asking Jesus to save us from our sins.

Faith can have a different meaning for many but it's certainly not an intellectual acknowledgment of His existence, only. It means giving Christ your ENTIRE life for Him to make of it what He has purposed for you. True liberty and freedom cannot be experienced without receiving God's forgiveness for our sins.

The problem doesn't lay in what we do or not but in the fact that it's in our "human nature" that sin resides. Be sincere and honest with yourself and Christ. We are all sinful creatures who need deliverance from ourselves and the enslaving of Satan over our lives.

As you receive Christ's forgiveness He will abide in you by His Spirit for eternity! As we all know it, life on earth isn't and will never be easy for anyone including those who surrender themselves to their Savior.

I will not leave you thinking that joy, fulfillment, meaning and victory aren't possible in our lives in this dying world. Rain and sunshine coexist and they sometimes bring about a rainbow-a reminder of God's faithfulness, and goodness in accomplishing His promises and taking pleasure in giving us what we also desire.

We've been given a void by God to go back to Him to live fully in His presence, sheltered by His unconditional love and security. Peace can reign in our hearts in the midst of storms as Christ can calm our seas...

Many precious believers are in love with the things of the Lord, but they are not in love with the Lord Himself. Many Christian workers and ministers are in love with the Lord’s work. Almost without realizing it, the work of the Lord becomes more important than the Lord of the work.

There are prophets and teachers who hold words from God in higher esteem than the God Who speaks the words they attribute as being from Him. People seek these words and teachings. The more they receive, the more they want. Before one word is digested they are craving another. They are seeking “things” – words, prophecies, teachings, visions, dreams – but they are not seeking the Lord Himself.
Is Jesus enough?

When the saints gather together most of the activity is focused on “one another”. This is important, but it is not the most important thing. Fellowship is good: but is Jesus enough? Gatherings are good: but is Jesus enough? Meetings are good: but is Jesus enough? Special speakers and special music are good: but is Jesus enough?

Even with praise and worship it is possible to sing “about” Jesus and not truly worship Jesus. With preaching and teaching it is possible to talk “about” Jesus and not truly meet Jesus in what is shared. In prayer it is possible to talk “about” our needs and never actually commune with Jesus Himself.

Among Christians I have discovered something. There is Jesus, and then there are all the things ABOUT Jesus that are NOT Jesus. Jesus Himself occupies only a small portion of what is said and done in Christian circles. Most of what is said and done is merely ABOUT Jesus, but it is NOT Jesus.

I have learned that stress, strife, disillusionment, dissatisfaction, bitterness, anger, hurt, misunderstanding, and confusion comes from everything said and done by religious people ABOUT the Lord, and IN THE NAME of the Lord, that does not, in fact, have anything to do with Jesus Himself.

How much of your focus is directed to the things of God, and not to God Himself? How much of your discussion centers on things about Jesus, and not Jesus Himself?
Just look around. This brother is focused on end-time events, and that sister is devoted to inner healing. This brother is primarily concerned with prophetic things, while another sister is keenly interested in spiritual warfare. That brother is deeply involved with theological discussions, while that sister is in love with Christian music. 

One movement emphasizes this particular thing, and another group stands for another thing.

There may be diversities of gifts and callings. There may be various and sundry things to be involved with. There may be many topics to study and discuss. Many things compete for our time, attention, affection, energy, and money.
But there is only one Lord Jesus. Just as some people cannot see the forest for the trees, I believe most sinners cannot see Jesus for the Christians. And I believe most Christians cannot see Jesus for the “church”.
Is Jesus enough?

If Jesus was all you had, would Jesus be enough for you? Or do you have to have all the “trappings” of Christianity, all the bells and whistles, all the toys and trinkets?

Make no mistake: there is no life in the things that are ABOUT Jesus. There is life only in Jesus Himself.

May I speak candidly? If you are dissatisfied and disappointed with your Christian walk today, it is only because of one thing: Jesus is not enough for you. Somewhere along the line, something else became more important than Jesus. Maybe you have become focused on the things ABOUT Jesus that are NOT Jesus.

There is only one solution. You do not need more of the Lord, because He has already given Himself completely to you already. You just need less of everything else.

Go back to when Jesus first called you to be with Him. Go back to the time when all you had was Him. Go back to the time when there was no work, no ministry, no vision, no special calling – except Jesus calling you to be with Him.

Remember when you said, “He’s all I need!” So what happened?

When we realize that Jesus is enough we will have a hunger that can only be filled by Jesus Christ. We will do anything to get to spend time with Him. Sometimes you just have to step out on faith, you have to become radical; you have to be sold out. Look at some of the people who heard about Jesus or who met Jesus and their entire life changed and Jesus was enough for them. 

Luke 8:43-48 KJV
43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.

John 4:1-42: The woman at the well.. Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman

Luke 5:17-39 New Life Version (NLV)

Jesus Heals a Man Let Down through the Roof of a House
Mark 10:46-52 New King James Version (NKJV).Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus

I pray the Lord will draw us after Himself and make us thoroughly sick and tired of things – especially the things that are ABOUT Him, but are NOT Him.
God so loved the world that He gave His Only Son, Jesus.
Well… is Jesus enough?

If You Want To Change Today, Then I Admonish You To Pray This Simple Yet Powerful Prayer: “Lord I’m Not Serving You Because I Have To, But Because I Want Too. Now Can You Imagine This:

Romans 1:1, “From Paul, a bond servant of Jesus Christ (the Messiah) called to be an apostle, (a special messenger) set apart to [preach] the Gospel (good news) of and from God” (AMP)

Can you imagine a slave not wanting to leave their master? But believe it or not, that was the case. There were some, however not many, slaves that actually refused to leave their master.

Now can you imagine if we (the church) had that kind of mindset? One that said “No matter what, I’m not leaving my master. I know I can legally go free, however, I Deliberately Choose To Remain Bonded to My Master For Life?That’s what you call Beyond Loyalty!

Well, in case you didn't know, if you are a believer, you are a bond servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is your Master! However, He treats us very different than any earthly master ever could. And yet, we still don’t submit to Him at this level. Still we’re not this loyal or this committed. That alone is a crime!

But If You Want To Change Today, Then I Admonish You To Pray This Simple Yet Powerful Prayer: “Lord I’m Not Serving You Because I Have To, But Because I Want To. Pierce me and mark me as Yours, bond me together with You so that I can never belong to another.

That actually reminds you a lot of Ruth’s words: “But Ruth said, “Don’t force me to leave you; don’t make me go home. Where you go, I go; and where you live, I’ll live. Your people are my people, your God is my god; where you die, I’ll die, and that’s where I’ll be buried, so help me God—not even death itself is going to come between us!” (Ruth 1:16-17 MSG). If only the Lord could get this kind of relationship with us!

Listen to a Simple Yet Profound Lesson I Learned the Hard Way: When ministry loses its passion it becomes an empty profession.

The very word “Minister” is a Verb, not just a Noun. It’s what you DO, not what you Claim to BE.

As the Lord’s Ministers (and no I am not referring to a robe and clergy collar, God has far more of those than I’m sure He ever called for, equipped or even wants), however, I’m referring to what we DOMinister to the Needs of Others. We need to learn how to Function with such a passion for Him that it spills over onto all we do for Him. Truth is, anyone can wear the title of Minister (noun), but it’s only a select few who are actually carrying out the (verb) and Functioning as such!

And in order for you to Function as such there has to be a basic foundation that you are the Lord’s Servant, not because you have to be, but because you Want to be. And that Commitment, that Loyalty, that Love Compels you to Function as a Minister in this world of misery Effectively! It gives you that extra push that when people give you a hard way to go, you go the extra mile anyway because of your Loyalty, Commitment and Love to and for HIM! When HE becomes your Pursuit and Purpose nothing else really matters, not even the Personality of others! But the Responsibility of Attaining such a Relationship is on YOUR PART!

The Scripture says, the Servant would make the DECISION to Stay! And then the Servant would have to endure Unnecessary Pain: “…pierce his ear with an awl, a sign that he is a slave for life.”  

Mind you, we have a lot of wonderful vices to dull the pain when we get piercings today, however, that was not the case then! Piercing Was Painful! And yet, the bond servant would Willingly Endure it because staying with his master and having Evidence that he was his masters, and no one elses’ was just that important!

Do you feel that way about the Master you serve? Is your Loyalty, Commitment and Love that Deep? Would you Endure Whatever Necessary to be Called His and to have Evidence that everyone would be able to See that you really are His…Alone? No one else could claim you, because you endured the pain to prove you already have a Master of your own, and you have no intentions on going anywhere else…even though you have the opportunity and free-will! Is your Relationship as a Servant that Knitted Together with your Master? Are You That Bonded?!

One of the definitions for the word 'Bond' is, 'a thing used to tie or fasten things together.' And do you know what tied and fastened the bond servant to his master? It was his willing servanthood; his commitment; loyalty; faithfulness; honor; trust; respect; and sometimes even love and friendship. So, can you honestly say you're bonded like that to the Lord Jesus Christ? Another definition calls it, 'a binding agreement.' The word 'binding' is defined as, 'a strong covering holding something together; an agreed upon contractual obligation.' And an 'agreement' is defined as, 'a negotiated legal binding arrangement representing the consistency and conformity between two things.' You see, being bonded is no joking or playful matter to be taken haphazardly, this is serious business when you're talking about a serious relationship. It's a servant taking on a leadership role to willfully follow through with a lifetime of submission! Therefore, I ask again, are you a bond servant of the Lord?

Before you answer "yes" too quickly let’s check out this word “Servant”. The word “Servant” also referred to a third-level galley slave chained to an oar on a Roman ship. Day and night you rowed to the drumbeat of the ship’s master, whether you were in battle or in merchant service. And you expected to die chained to that oar! What a picture!

So, do you love your Master like that? Are you willing to serve as a third-level galley slave in the bottom of the boat, in the dark, unseen, unnoticed, and yet working hard to obey every command of the Master? Are you willing to die for the Gospel or is it just a cute cliché you repeat because that makes your relationship with Him sound deeper than the shallow surface that it really is?!

The Bible Says: “When people realize it is the living God you are presenting and not some idol that makes them feel good, they are going to turn on you, even people in your own family. There is a great irony here: proclaiming so much love, experiencing so much hate! But don’t quit. Don’t cave in. It is all well worth it in the end. It is not success you are after in such times but survival. Be survivors! Before you’ve run out of options, the Son of Man will have arrived.” (Matthew 10:21-23 MSG) Are you willing to endure pain for the Gospel’s sake? To be such a Servant as to have even loved ones’ turn on you, and yet you Remain Loyal to Your Master, With Your Hands Still Firmly Gripping the Oars?!

The Bible Says: “They are going to throw you to the wolves and kill you, everyone hating you because you carry my name. And then, going from bad to worse, it will be dog-eat-dog, everyone at each other’s throat, everyone hating each other.” (Matthew 24:9 MSG) Are You Willing to Endure This Level of Attack...Servant?!

The Bible Says: “I’ve told you these things to prepare you for rough times ahead. They are going to throw you out of the meeting places. There will even come a time when anyone who kills you will think he’s doing God a favor. They will do these things because they never really understood the Father. I’ve told you these things so that when the time comes and they start in on you, you’ll be well-warned and ready for them.” (John 16:1-4 MSG) Are You Willing To Stay Bonded To Your Master, Even If This Is The Consequences of Your Service?

The Bible Says: “Fear nothing in the things you’re about to suffer—but stay on guard! Fear nothing! The Devil is about to throw you in jail for a time of testing—ten days. It won’t last forever. “Don’t quit, even if it costs you your life. Stay there believing. I have a Life-Crown sized and ready for you.” (Revelation 2:10 MSG) So…Can You Minister, Even At This Level? A level in which it could cost you your life?!

The Bible Says: “Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?” (Matthew 16:24-26 MSG) Can You Still Serve Him When You Don’t Even Understand Him? Can You Serve Him When He’s In the Driver’s Seat and You Have No Idea Where He’s Going? Will You Still Remain Bonded When You Don’t Understand the Job Loss, the Diagnosis, the Divorce, the Foreclosure? Will You Still Remain Stuck Like Glue? Or will you easily detach like Velcro?

The Bible Says: “When we heard that, we and everyone there that day begged Paul not to be stubborn and persist in going to Jerusalem. But Paul wouldn’t budge: “Why all this hysteria? Why do you insist on making a scene and making it even harder for me? You’re looking at this backward. The issue in Jerusalem is not what they do to me, whether arrest or murder, but what the Master Jesus does through my obedience. Can’t you see that?” (Acts 21:12-13 MSG) Well, Can You Say That? Can You Say Whatever Is the Result of My Obedience to My Master It Is Still Well With My Soul?

The Bible Says: “When he ripped off the fifth seal, I saw the souls of those killed because they had held firm in their witness to the Word of God. They were gathered under the Altar, and cried out in loud prayers, “How long, Strong God, Holy and True? How long before you step in and avenge our murders?” Then each martyr was given a white robe and told to sit back and wait until the full number of martyrs was filled from among their servant companions and friends in the faith.” (Revelation 6:9-11 MSG) Can You Serve Even While Suffering And Yet…Still Remain On Your Post? This Was Paul’s Level of Loyalty, Commitment and Love As a Bond Servant to His Master…Does Your Levels Match Paul’s? If So, Celebrate, if Not, Decide Today To Deepen Your Service to Him!

And in conclusion to the whole matter, when you think of all that the Lord has done for you, is He really asking too much of you?

People of God, today is the day that you make the willing and deliberate decision to be bonded as a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. After all, if you're not all in, what's the point? Jesus didn't just suffer, He died, for you, on your behalf! He gave His life, He gave His all, so what exactly is the message we're sending to Him, when we give Him parts and portions of ourselves to Him, and call it service?

“And he said to him, Well done, excellent BOND SERVANT! Because you have been faithful and trustworthy in a very little [thing], you shall have authority over ten cities” (Luke 19:17 AMP)

Becoming a Bond Servant is not by force, but by a deliberate, and willful choice to remain faithful to your Master, no matter what. And if you should dare to desire such a calling, are you in good company? Yes Sir, Yes Ma'am!

Truth Is, Many Of Us Are In A Particular Season Of Life Right Now Where Life Seems Like A Puzzle. Many Pieces To The Puzzle, Scattered Everywhere! If Only You Could Get One Piece In Place.

Luke 15:17, “He began to think about what he had done. He said to himself…” (NLV)

Truth is, many of us are in a particular season of life right now where life seems like a puzzle. Many pieces to the puzzle, scattered everywhere! If only you could get one piece in place, the rest just may take care of itself. Trouble is; there are a lot of pieces you’re working with at the moment: financial, health, mental, emotional, spiritual, marital, parental, work, church, family. And for most, that list gets longer and longer. For some there’s that inner struggle with who you are and why you're here, what are you supposed to be doing, or where you're going. It's a time of confusion and frustration, maybe even some despair.

We've been pretty focused on our battles and on our problems. But we may be missing one piece of the puzzle, the baseline issue really. You, Me and Us!

There's a helpful picture of many of us in a story that Jesus told, recorded in Luke 15, beginning with verse 11. It's the story of the Prodigal Son; a guy who was the missing piece to his own life puzzle. Take a listen to his story:

Luke 15:11-24, “And Jesus said, “There was a man who had two sons.  The younger son said to his father, ‘Father, let me have the part of the family riches that will be coming to me.’ Then the father divided all that he owned between his two sons.  Soon after that the younger son took all that had been given to him and went to another country far away. There he spent all he had on wild and foolish living.  When all his money was spent, he was hungry. There was no food in the land.  He went to work for a man in this far away country. His work was to feed pigs.  He was so hungry he was ready to eat the outside part of the ears of the corn the pigs ate because no one gave him anything. “HE BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE HAD DONE. HE SAID TO HIMSELF, ‘My father pays many men who work for him. They have all the food they want and more than enough. I am about dead because I am so hungry.  I will get up and go to my father. I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.  I am not good enough to be called your son. But may I be as one of the workmen you pay to work?”’  “The son got up and went to his father. While he was yet a long way off, his father saw him. The father was full of loving-pity for him. He ran and threw his arms around him and kissed him.  The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am not good enough to be called your son.’  But the father said to the workmen he owned, ‘Hurry! Get the best coat and put it on him. Put a ring on his hand and shoes on his feet.  Bring the calf that is fat and kill it. Let us eat and be glad.  For my son was dead and now he is alive again. He was lost and now he is found. Let us eat and have a good time.’ (NLV)

However, the one I love is the New Living Version, it says it like this: “…HE BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE HAD DONE. HE SAID TO HIMSELF…” That young man couldn't think of any possible reason for his predicament except the real one - HIMSELF. That's where your answer will begin as well.

Truth is, all of us have a tendency to lay blame for how our lives have turned out…except laying that blame on our own front door, and better still, in our own lap! Because then we would have to take accountability and responsibility for our choices, consequences and change. Which means, we’d have to get past what our spouse or our kids or our parents or our coworkers, church folks, or what other people have done or said. And instead, look in the mirror and clear up the vision of the person we’ve distorted or we've allowed to be distorted.

James 1:22-24, “Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.” (MSG)

And haven’t we done that long enough? How many additional years are we going to see our flaws in our reflection in the mirror, point them out, but never acknowledge them enough to fix them? It’s not that we don’t know what to do, it’s that we haven’t done it yet.

Could it be that we're the puzzle that needs putting together – and more than that, we are the missing piece to the puzzle?

The prodigal son never lies to himself. He doesn’t make any attempt to retell his story in a more favorable light. He doesn’t point fingers, accuse anyone else, or lay blame. The Bible says, “…HE BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT WHAT HE HAD DONE. HE SAID TO HIMSELF…”

As comical as it may sound, maybe today is a good day to have a little talk with ourselves…and our Father…the prodigal son did and so did David:
Are we ready to acknowledge that the problem and the answer just may be Us?

What I love about the prodigal son and David is that neither tried to make their mess look good. They both acknowledged that their sin stuff does indeed stink in the nostrils of God! Neither put a ‘if they didn’t; or if she would have; or if he had only’, spin on it. No…God it’s ME and only ME. It’s the way I’ve handled my spouse, my children, my finances, my health, my education, my job, my missed opportunities, my ministry. It’s the way I handled the pressure, the challenges, the struggles, the stress, the temptation, the sin. I was the one to allow the intimidation, fear, laziness and procrastination to hinder me. I was the one who didn’t give it greater effort. I was the one who didn’t try. I messed up, I made the mistake, I got it wrong, it was my fault.

That’s not weak or depressing, it’s honest. And that honesty will lead us back to our Father who is waiting to help you and me.

Jeremiah 33:3, “This is God’s Message, the God who made earth, made it livable and lasting, known everywhere as God: ‘Call to Me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.” (MSG)

Isaiah 65:24, “I will answer their prayers before they finish praying.” (CEV) The Living Bible says it like this: “I will answer them before they even call to Me. While they are still talking to Me about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!” (TLB)

That’s how much our Father loves us! So, what are we waiting for? Not even the prodigal son with all of his mess could cause his father to love him any less. And likewise, there’s nothing you’ve done that could make your Father love you any less. His love does not work on a merit system. You don’t deserve it, nor do you work for it. He loves you regardless of anything. So let today be the day that we look in the mirror and began to work on the flaws we see in our reflection.

Think about it: No one ever (adult or child) held up an incomplete puzzle and said yay, it’s done! Look at how beautiful it is! No, the puzzle needs to have all the pieces in their rightful places to complete the full picture. And we need to do the same for our life. We are our own missing piece! And much like that father and son in the doctor’s office, if we would simply get the ‘man’ right, the world would get right too.

Maybe the only thing that’s really missing from your marriage is getting You right. Maybe the only thing missing from your dreams being fulfilled is getting You right. Maybe the promotion would come as soon as You get You right. Maybe when you become a better steward over the finances you already have, increase would come, as soon as You get You right!

When we get the person right, we’ll get the person’s world right! You are the only missing piece to your happiness. Get yourself in place so you can see the wonderful completed picture of what God has been trying to reveal to you. The life you’ve always wanted will all fall in place just as soon as you get the missing piece in place…You!

We have to work on us if we want to see a better me, you or us! Treat your self-examination like your physicals. It’s vital to make sure we go to the doctor and get ourselves checked out before anything happens. Likewise, we need to check ourselves out daily [attitudes; motives; intentions; behavior; speech; heart], before anything happens! Make all the necessary adjustments to make your life better.
