Is Jesus Christ Enough–2 Corinthians 12

Is God’s grace sufficient for you?  It used to be an easy question—Of Course!  But as we travel on the journey and experience trials, and suffering, we tend to reflect and reevaluate how serious we are about that statement.  I must admit–there are days when it is difficult to cling to the idea that Jesus is enough.  The great news is, however, that He is enough—whether we emotionally buy in or not.  He paid a price that we will never comprehend; just so we could experience a relationship with God.  It was not simply the death on the cross that makes Jesus sacrifice so compelling; it is the fact that he gave up his status as an immortal, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God to walk among us as a servant.  He was subjected to Satan, and his temptation.  He was rejected by the religious community despite the fact he was there simply to guide them to truth.  He daily dealt with the pain of humanity from a position of humility,  watching folks hurt and die—Then, he was able to express the heart of God to folks—Just Like Him. 

 I would rather have it easy, I do not like trials! But whether I have to face them or not, I have to be certain, in my life, that I can say yes to the question “Is Jesus Christ enough.”  I pray, Father, that you will give me the faith and courage to be able to say yes!

 God Bless You

Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. 8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
