Just Jesus

"Jesus+Nothing=Everything." -Tullian Tchividjian


Jesus+Works of Righteousness=Everything.

Jesus+My Favorite Worship Songs on Sunday Morning=Everything.

Jesus+A Great Sermon=Everything.

Jesus+Fill in the Blank=Everything.

Just Jesus. Because Jesus is so very much more than enough. He's enough to wake up with. He's enough to fall asleep with. He's enough to get through every day that you draw breath with. He's enough when life turns out to be so much worse than you ever could have imagined. He's enough for your crises. He's enough when there is no one left.

Jesus always was.

In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word (Jesus) was with God, and the Word (Jesus) was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not over come it. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. He came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him. Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God--children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. The Word (Jesus) became flesh and made His dwelling among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-14  (italics mine) 

Jesus always is.

The Godhead, three in one. Father. Spirit. Son.
