Five Minute Friday: In Christ We Have Enough

When I read today’s topic, so many verses of Scripture came to mind. In many areas, in Christ we have enough!


Enough saving grace: “and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Romans‬ ‭3:24‬ ‭

Enough sustaining grace: “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭

Enough mercy: “Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” ‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭

Enough courage to say as Paul did: “I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.”‭‭Philippians‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭

Enough power, love and self-discipline: “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭

Enough provision: “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭

Enough to be content: “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭ 

We even have enough trouble for today, but with enough grace to bear it: “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew‬ ‭6:34‬ ‭

“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭12:9‬ 

IIn light of these truths, there is little excuse for worry, discontment, or complaining. 

Father, please help us to remember all You have provided for us, and to daily give you thanks. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
