All You Need Is In Jesus.

Key Verse

“And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.” Colossians 1:17

Text — Colossians 1:15-19


Suppose you were given a pen and paper to list all your needs. How many things will you write? There are many needs in the life of a child. King Solomon was given the opportunity by God to choose what he wanted most. He made the right choice and He was blessed. Now, the first question is, What do you need? Two, which of these needs is the most important? The second question is more difficult to answer than the first.

Sometimes, you may need to run to Mom or Dad to guide you to choose the most important thing you need.
But the Lord, Jesus Christ has given us the guideline for making the best choice when choosing our needs. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness: and all these things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33) Consider this list and choose what you think you need: Salvation, Clean heart, Academic Success, Scholarship, Be the best in your class, Good health, Love from Mom and Dad, Love from all your friends, provisions of school fees, Books, New school uniform, Protection, Good future and any other good things not mentioned here.

All these are found in Jesus. When you have Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, you have everything. Consider His promise: “And Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” (John 14:13) If you have Jesus, you have everything.
