When Jesus is ENOUGH,

a believer has no fear of failure, of losing everything, of being pitied by all for being a loser/nobody who strove for excellence, but failed.  When Jesus is ENOUGH, a believer lives and loves with reckless abandon.  Uninhibited.  FREE.  Bold.  Fearless.  Humble.  Optimal performance.

When Jesus is NOT enough, a believer is self-absorbed, internally selfish, failure-avoidant, suffering-avoidant, stressed, intense, hurried, feels under the gun, unlimited obligation, miserable but living in denial of the misery.  And performance suffers.  The stressed, pride-filled believer wants MORE than Jesus and His imputed worthiness.

Contentment is the pearl of great price, worth selling all to get.

— Dave McCarty, GospelFriendships, chief failure at practicing what he preaches
