Jesus is My Everything

“You are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness & sanctification & redemption.” -1Corinthians 1:30

Everything I need from God is brought to me by the God-Man. I don’t have to be everything because Jesus is my everything.

I don’t have to know (fill in the blank) because Jesus is my wisdom.

I don’t have to be (fill in the blank) because Jesus is my righteousness.

I don’t have to feel hopeless that I will always be (fill in the blank) because Jesus is my sanctification.

I don’t have to remain trapped in my struggles with (fill in the blank) because Jesus is my redemption.

I don’t have to be able to do (fill in the blank) because Jesus is my power.

“Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” 1 Corinthians 1:24-25

What a relief that I don’t have to try to be everything today because Jesus is my everything every day.

    Thank you, Ian, for this great reminder. This follows John the Baptist’s thinking when considering his Messiah.

    “He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, ‘I am not the Christ.’”
    (John 1:20 ESV)
