“Is Christ alone sufficient?  Is Christ all that we need?  Unfortunately, often we do not realize that Christ is all that we need until He is all that we have! 
 
Would we be complete and content with only Him?  Christ is not only my Savior; He is also my Satisfier because Christ is fully sufficient to meet every one of my needs.  Nothing else will satisfy but Him because He is the Living Water (see John 4:13-14; 7:37) and the Bread of Life (see John 6:35). When I endeavor to find my satisfaction in any other person or thing, it is like trying to drink from a broken cistern that can hold no water (see Jeremiah 2:13). 

“Is Christ alone sufficient?  Is Christ all that we need?  Unfortunately, often we do not realize that Christ is all that we need until He is all that we have!

Perhaps God’s greatest desire for us is to recognize our need of Him and find our satisfaction and sufficiency in Him.  If there is a “formula” for living the Christian life, it is simply: Jesus Christ plus nothing equals everything!”  Jerry Benjamin, “Simply Singular- Is Christ Prominent or Preeminent?”, p. 18.
