3 Reasons Why Jesus Is Enough

“You don’t realize Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have.”

– Tim Keller

DEAD IN OUR SINS

One reason we need Christ, even for those who don’t realize it, is that “you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses” (Col. 2:13). We were DOA. We had no pulse. We had earned our wages, and that was death (Rom. 6:23a). But God “made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved” (Eph. 2:5). Today, those who are not saved are like the series “The Walking Dead,” but they don’t know they’re dead. However, Paul addresses those who’ve been born again, writing, “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1).  It was like a wakeup call: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you” (Eph. 5:14).
