More Than Enough

*
Jesus is not a means to an end.

My relationship with Jesus cannot be built around getting what I want. My obedience is not a claim ticket for my desires. It is an offering to Him, an act of gratitude for the love He shows me. Jesus is enough—more than enough.

“The message of scripture and the gospel of Christ is not that in following Him everything is going to go right, but that He is enough, no matter what happens.” – Matt Chandler

you mean finding Jesus isn't like winning the lottery? Rats. I was hoping. Actually, I've been thinking about this in terms of serving those I love. I am not serving/loving them so they will serve/love me, I'm serving them because I love them. I needed to remember that today too. Love you!! Hey, that Julie girl gave me my book back. Yay!!!
