60 reasons why Jesus Christ is everything to me

If you can say, “Yes, me too!” to the points on this list, then your life will also be unshakable!
  1. He is my peace. Outside that, there can be unrest and commotion everywhere as far as I am concerned.
  2. He is my joy. I do not need any other joy.
  3. He is the atonement for all my sins. He has cast all my sins behind Him into the sea of forgetfulness. If I should sin again, He will forgive me, for this sin has also been atoned for.
  4. He is my sanctifier. He purifies me again and again as long as I live. His death is working in me, with the result that there is gradually more room for the life of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:12)
  5. He is my Shepherd. Even if no one else cares for me, He does so faithfully day and night.
  6. He is my song of praise. If there is no other topic or any other reason for singing praises, He is.
  7. He is my capital. I do not need any other capital. If that is not sufficient, then nothing is sufficient.
  8. He is my income. If that fails, then everything fails.
  9. He is my insurance. If that isn’t safe, nothing is safe.
  10. He is my future. I look unto Him. I am going to meet Him. Then my future is bright and long. Hallelujah!
  11. He is my only Lord and ruler. I have sanctified Him as Lord in my heart. (1 Peter 3:15) I have submitted to Him, being fully confident of the perfect goodness of His guidance and commands.
  12. He is my family. He is my mother, sister, and brother.
  13. He is my honor. I have absolutely no need of any other honor. It makes no difference if people dishonor and despise me all the days of my life.
  14. He is my fortress, my shield, and my guardian. There I am safe.
  15. He is my Master. I am an apprentice. Even if no one else instructs me diligently in the truth, He does.
  16. He is my leader. Even if all others were only talkers who had not themselves gone on the way, so I could rely on them to lead me, He would still be well acquainted with the way. Glory be to His name!
  17. He is my captain. Even if no one else strengthens me and teaches me to wage war, He is a mighty warrior, the captain of God’s host. He is no weakling.
  18. He is my rest. Even though my body had neither bed nor pillow, my spirit would still have a delightful place of rest – in Him!
  19. He is my storeroom. Even if I did not have any supplies, yet in Him dwells the fullness of the Godhead bodily, and I am a member of His body, filled by Him.
  20. He is my physician. Even if no earthly physician can heal my body, He can do it; and He also does it if it is for my best.
  21. He is my goal – to become like Him and partake of His nature.
  22. He is my forerunner. I am not journeying on an unknown way as an explorer. It is a way that has been cleared and on which Jesus has run ahead. Every step has been taken by Him previously. He has been tested in all points, exactly like the steps I am now taking and am yet to take. What a comfort that is!
  23. He is my comfort. This comfort is sufficient for me.
  24. He is my Judge. It does not matter how other people judge me.
  25. He is my choice food. He is the bread of life. His flesh is truly food.
  26. He is my entertainment and my pleasure. All other entertainment fades by comparison.
  27. He is my fortune and my prosperity. What He sends in my way is always fortunate and for my prosperity. No one has ever experienced better fortune and prosperity.
  28. He is my wisdom and my understanding. Greater wisdom and better understanding than obedience to Him is not to be found.
  29. He – the Word – is my sword. This weapon cuts better than any other.
  30. He is my faithful, upright friend. Any other friendship is not needed.
  31. He is my interest. Relative to Him all other interests are pure vanity.
  32. He is my rock and my foundation. He stands when everything else passes away.
  33. He is my life. It shall endure forever.
  34. He is the truth. There is never a reason to doubt Him.
  35. He is my Bridegroom, my eternally Beloved.
  36. He is my defender, my advocate, my lawyer. I have no need for any other lawyers.
  37. He is the Mediator; He mediates between the Father and me. I have access to the Father through Him.
  38. He is God’s Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit.
  39. He is the Son of Man, a man, the son of Abraham, the son of David, born of the Virgin Mary.
  40. He is my true Brother, the most excellent and firstborn among many brethren.
  41. He is my High Priest who has compassion with my infirmities.
  42. He is my holiday. You cannot have a more strengthening vacation than by abiding in Him.
  43. He is my comfort. No one can be more comfortable than by being where He is.
  44. He is the tree of life into which I have been grafted as a branch.
  45. He is the master builder who is building me up together with the others as a habitation of God in the Spirit.
  46. He is the chief cornerstone in the living building in which I have also become a living stone.
  47. He is a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense of which I have become a partaker through the cross – an offense to all those who want to defend their own.
  48. He is the Head of the church, the body of which I have also become a member.
  49. He is my strength. I can do all things in Him – everything that He appoints for me.
  50. He is God’s power. It is marvelous that that He could accomplish all the things He did in a flesh and blood like ours.
  51. He is God’s wisdom. It is marvelous to gain insight into what occurred in Christ Jesus.
  52. He is the mystery of God. Is it any wonder that people do not understand His person?
  53. He is my time; He fills it. It never gets boring. Wasting time falls away.
  54. He is my Sabbath. I rest in Him, in His will and work, instead of going my own ways and “going about my own business.” I do this every day of the week all year long, and therefore I consider (as it is written) all days alike. Constant Sabbath rest! God be praised!
  55. He is the Giver of all good gifts. My eyes do not need to look out for other givers.
  56. He is my refuge. I can avoid having to run to broken cisterns on the day of need.
  57. He is the fountain of my life“All my fountains are in You.” Psalm 87:7.
  58. He is in all things the perfect pattern.
  59. He is unchangeable and without shadow of turning. He is always the same even though all others are as changeable as the moon.
  60. He is everything to me. That is precisely why everything else is as nothing. It is meaningless and indifferent to me. Amen.
