Jesus Is My Everything
“You are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” 1 Corinthians 1:30
Everything I need from God is brought to me by the God-Man. I don’t have to be everything because Jesus is my everything.

“Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” 1 Corinthians 1:24–25
What a relief that I don’t have to try to be everything today because Jesus is my everything every day.
