In 1 Corinthians chapter 2, verse 2, Paul says, “For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” Notice he didn’t say, “I sought to know nothing among you except grace, mercy, forgiveness, justification, or healing.” He didn’t say any of that. He said, “I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” See, Jesus is love. He is joy, peace, wisdom, sanctification, redemption; He is our righteousness. He’s our everything. And everything that God has to offer us, He offers it to us in Christ. Paul says, in Romans 8, verse 32, “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” See, when we reach out and we touch Christ, we touch everything that God has to offer us. And all things pertaining to life and godliness are found in Him. So, with Jesus Christ, it’s an all-inclusive package deal, just like Romans 8, verse 32 says. So, really, our hearts and our minds can be at rest and content with the Lord and Him alone.
