He’s All You Need: The Sufficiency of Christ

So sufficient and complete is Christ that there is no other God besides him (Isa. 45:5); he is the only begotten Son (John 1:14, 18); all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in him (Col. 2:3); the fullness of deity dwells bodily in him (Col. 2:9); he is heir of all things (Heb. 1:2); he created all things and all things were made by him, through him, and for him (Col. 1:15); he is the exact imprint of God (Heb. 1:3).

He is the only Mediator between God and man; he is the Sun that enlightens; the Physician that heals; the Wall of Fire that defends; the Friend that comforts; the Pearl that enriches; the Ark that supports; and the Rock to sustain under the heaviest of pressures.

He has no beginning and no end (Rev. 1:17-18); he is the spotless Lamb of God; he is our Peace (Eph. 2:14); he is our Hope (1 Tim. 1:1); he is our life (Col. 3:4); he is the living and true Way (John 14:6); he is Faithful and True (Rev. 19:11); he is the Founder and Perfecter of our faith (Heb. 12:1-2).

He is the Lord of Hosts, the Redeemer – the Holy One of Israel, the God of the whole earth (Is. 54:5); he is the Man of Sorrows (Is. 53:3); he is the Light; he is the Son of Man (Matt. 20:28); he is the Vine; he is the Bread of Life; he is the Door; he is the Lord (Phil. 2:10-13); he is Prophet, Priest and King (Heb. 1:1-3).

He is our Sabbath rest (Heb. 4:9); he is our Righteousness (Jer. 23:6); he is the Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace (Is. 9:6); he is the Lord of the nations; he is the Lion of Judah; the Living Word; the Rock of Salvation, the Eternal Spirit; he is the Ancient of Days; Creator and Comforter; Messiah; and the Great I Am (John 8:58).
