Jesus Is Enough

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:6

A few years ago, my wife and I went on a food program (she doesn’t like for me to refer to it as a “diet”). The plan basically had the philosophy that if God made it, it was good but if man made it then it was bad for you. It was built on the concept that the additives in food are not usually good for you.

There are preservatives in bread and cheese to make them resistant to the growth of mold. We find food coloring in margarine to make it look more like butter, artificial sweeteners in soft drinks to make them calorie-free, and fillers in meat products to give them more volume. These seem good and well. Much of the time there comes a point where adding to something can actually subtract from it. This is true of the Gospel (the death, burial, and resurrection that brings faith in Jesus; 1st Corinthians 15:1-4).

There is a growing movement to return to natural or organic foods. There is a return to pure cane sugar and other natural sweeteners that reduce the artificial stuff. There are documents that state that butter is healthier than margarine. And on it goes.

Many want to add to their faith in Jesus Christ other ingredients like membership to a certain church of denomination, a worship style, along with many do’s and don’ts. The Bible teaches do’s and don’ts but not when it comes to the faith that brings salvation. The Bible is very clear that Jesus was and is enough. “For no other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1st Corinthians 3:11).


  • Jesus is enough to be our Savior
  • Jesus is enough to be sufficient
  • Jesus is enough to be our security
