Is Christ Really Everything To You Or Is That Mere Christian Platitude?

“If Christ is not all to you He is nothing to you. He will never go into partnership as a part Saviour of men. If He be something He must be everything, and if He be not everything He is nothing to you.”

 ~ Charles H. Spurgeon

Take away psychology and psychiatry, take away John Piper, Beth Moore, Kay Arthur, John Calvin, Martin Luther, John MacArthur ---wait, could you do that? Or would you/do you continue to hold on to Jesus AND your favorite teacher? At what cost? What about your relationships? Are you willing to forsake them for Christ?  If you can't "know" the Lord without men, if you can't "really" know the Truth without men, if you must seek their books for answers, if you hold loved ones in one hand and Jesus in the other, consider that you really are not at the point where it is ONLY Christ or not at all.....that HE isn't EVERYTHING to you.
