Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God. 2 Corinthians 3:5
The disciples threw their nets over the right side of the boat, catching so many fish that they were unable to haul in the net. Instantly, they went from the complication of emptiness to the comfort of fullness! Often, when we find ourselves in a season of “full nets” the provider of abundance is forgotten. We begin to feel self-sufficient and comfortable; life is good. However, that comfort casually leads to complacency. Our spiritual sustenance intake (the Bible) slacks, prayer becomes less of a priority; and our “giving” gives way to “getting.” Instead of using our success to serve, we become smug.
There is no such thing as a complacent Christian.
As a Christ follower, you are nothing but an instrument in the hands of God. You can do nothing and have nothing apart for Him. The Bible says, “I am the vine; you are the branches” (John 15:5). Moreover, God’s grace is sufficient and His power makes us perfect (2 Corinthians 12:9). Instead of claiming we are sufficient in ourselves, we must boldly express our sufficiency in Christ. If you truly believe your sufficiency is from God, you will become a satisfied servant.
Are you boldly expressing your sufficiency in Christ to others?
