Pause

All of You is more than enough for all of me,

for ev’ry thirst and ev’ry need.

You satisfy me with Your love,

and all I have in You is more than enough.

“Enough” by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio (2002)

Listen

They asked, “What must we do in order to accomplish what God requires?”

Jesus replied, “This is what God requires, that you believe in him whom God sent.”

They asked, “What miraculous sign will you do, that we can see and believe you? What will you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, just as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.”

John 6:28-31

Think

When Jesus raises the issue of eternal life, the crowd asks him a sensible question: “What must we do?” In other words, “How much is enough?” Women and men have posed this same question throughout history. What does God expect of me? How can I know? How can I be sure that I measure up? How much is enough?

Jesus’s reply reframes the entire conversation. He tells the people, “Believe in me. That is enough.” Rather than grasping and striving to do enough on our own, the good news is that belief in Jesus is enough. This belief is enough because Jesus is enough. As long as we insist on achieving eternal life on our own merits, we will always fall short. But the good news is that we don’t have to earn salvation. Jesus, “him whom God sent,” is enough. Enough for each one of us.

Pray

Lord Jesus, you are enough. I believe that you are the one sent by God to rescue the world. Jesus, you are enough for me. Amen.

God has the power to provide you with more than enough of every kind of grace. That way, you will have everything you need always and in everything to provide more than enough for every kind of good work.
