Jesus is Enough!
Unfortunately, as Christians we are people given to introspection. Some of it is self-imposed. Other times it is imposed upon us by the expectation of others. This introspection often leaves us questioning if we have done enough. How often have you wondered, “Did I pray long enough? Have I fasted often enough? Is my quiet time deep enough? Am a serving and giving enough?” Whenever you are tempted toward introspection and ask those “enough” questions, you should hear God answering, “No you haven’t done enough. But it’s alright because, Jesus is enough!”
In other words, you should read your bible, but don’t trust in your Bible reading; trust in Jesus! You should pray, but don’t trust in your prayers trust in Jesus! You should fast, but don’t trust in your fasting trust in Jesus! By all means serve and give, but don’t trust in your service or your giving; trust in Jesus. Whenever your conscience tempts you toward self-centered evaluations or Satan tempts you to despair of your lack of diligence, say to self and Satan, “I got Jesus, and that’s enough!”
