Love's Foundation: Jesus' Love is Enough

“That’s enough!” When do we hear these words? We may when someone thinks they have eaten so much that they can’t take any more food, or I might make that comment to a waitress who’s refilling my drink. Whatever the situation, usually saying, “That’s enough” means one has reached a state of fullness, satisfaction, or contentment, and there’s no need or desire for more. Finding one’s fullness, satisfaction, or contentment in the presence and love of Jesus Christ is foundational to living to love with Him. That’s what I mean when I say, “Jesus’ love is enough.”

Love's Foundation: One God, Who is Love

One of Jesus’ most popular parables illustrated the importance of the foundation upon which people build their lives. The sand and rock were metaphors He used for foundations upon which we build our lives. One foolish man built his house on the sand, but the other man, who was wise, built his house upon the rock. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24). Jesus is the rock! Jesus, Himself, is the solid foundation for everyone who aspires to be a channel of His love. He is not a mere foundation upon which we build our own lives, or a good model for us to follow, but He lives in us and fills us with all that He is!

Don't Miss the Opportunities

    Every situation is an opportunity to trust God, and every relationship is an opportunity to love with Jesus. Every day is filled with opportunities. If unbelief and idolatry lurk within us, then they will take hold of us as we go through trying events and as we encounter uncooperative people, and they will hinder the flow of faith and love through us to others.
