From the Pastor's Desk

On a recent afternoon, I made contact within about 2 hours with 3 families, all of whom are going through very serious issues of varying natures. It was a reminder to me of the importance of what we do. I pray God we never become calloused to that kind of thing.

It also reminded me of a truth that God has been impressing upon me recently, "Jesus is enough." It's easy to get religious with that quickly and say, "Oh yes, Jesus is more than enough." That is true. But it has to translate to daily life. If I really believe that Jesus is enough, then I cease striving, I have nothing to prove, and I don't worry.

Have you ever noticed that Jesus never worried? We tend to go through life feeling that we have to prove something, so we try hard. The truth is that I am not enough. But because He is enough and has enough, I can rest. I am enough and have enough because He is enough.

The only miracle recorded in all four gospels is the feeding of the 5,000. Why that one? Perhaps it is because the story displays a real fear from the Disciples about not having enough.

Most of us feel those fears - I am not enough, I don't have enough, God is enough. There are many scriptures to lean on. How about this one? "The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want" (Ps. 23:1). That is the testimony of one who really believes that Jesus is enough.
