The death he died, he died to sin once for all but the life he lives, he lives to God. (Romans 6:10)
Last week we found out about the power of God in Jesus to break all the chains of the enemy keeping us bond in this life. Our song was Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs. Now that His word broke those old chains we need to find something positive to attach our lives to; not because we have to but instead we choose to. The death that Christ died on the cross was not so only a few would be saved; His death was enough for everyone who would call on Him. Now the life He lives is to God so the enemy no longer has power over us. Today we will praise with the song Christ Is Enough by Hillsong. The link is https://youtu.be/zbzsiRoTSPc or search for the song on YouTube. Christ is our reward if we have devoted it all to Him. Nothing in this world could ever fulfill the way we are satisfied when He is with us. Through all our trials we sing; no turning back because He has set us free. Christ Is Enough for me; He is enough for us all to share. Only He can provide for all our needs. I think this reality is no more real to a believer than if they became saved as a child. Honestly all children have a certain level of belief so we can all relate. Children need very little proof to believe anything because they have imagination and trust without a second thought. If they learn about Jesus, understanding what God’s Son did for them and they make a commitment to Him it is because they are convinced it is enough to forgive them. When we grow up and get responsibilities we learn to do things without God and sometimes He becomes less than enough for us. Can we say Christ Is Enough for me? Is He? How do we make sure that He stays that way?
How we live is important for us to have a healthy relationship with the Lord. It takes wisdom to do what is right. We must make the best of every situation because the day we’re in are full of evil. We must not be foolish but learn and understand the will of the Lord. Getting drunk and letting our openness lead us into sin is not wise. It is best to be led by the Holy Spirit by giving encouragement to others through psalms, hymns and songs from the Spirit. We should sing to the Lord from our heart and enjoy our salvation, giving our thanks to God for everything through the name of Jesus (Ephesians 5:15-20). We should count it all loss because of the greater worth of knowing Christ our Lord, who helped us lose it when we were saved. If we consider it all garbage what we get in Christ is the greatest gift (Philippians 3:8). Christ Is Enough for us to give up our past! He’s no stranger to what we are turning from; He became human so that in death He might break the power of him who holds the power of death, the devil. He freed our lives from being slaves to the fear of death (Hebrews 2:14-15). Christ Is Enough to retrieve the power of death so we don’t have to fear it all our lives. The challenges we suffer with in this life cannot stop God’s Word because it cannot be chained. We endure these things for the sake of those who have not obtained their salvation in Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 2:9-10). He is enough for us to endure struggles for the sake of the needs of others since He suffered for us all. For those who are unsaved and for our great cloud of witnesses let us throw off sins that hinder us. We must run our race with diligence, fixing our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of faith (Hebrews 12:1-2). He perfected it on the cross and was seated at God’s right hand. Now may God, who brought Him back from the dead equip us in everything good for doing His will and He will work in us what is pleasing to Him (Hebrews 13:20-21). Christ Is Enough because our faith is only made perfect when we acknowledge that we need Him to save us.

No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light. Luke 8:16
