Being enough is exhausting. But pastor, the good news is that you cannot be enough. Because only Jesus is enough.
In Pastor, Jesus Is Enough, Jeremy Writebol invites pastors to hear the words of the risen Jesus in the seven letters within Revelation 2–3. The exhortations in Revelation 2–3 are directed to churches. But they also exhort pastors.
In these seven letters, Jesus draws near to pastors—whether hurting or straying—and reminds them of his sufficiency. In these warnings and promises, Jesus has hard words for pastors. But they are words of life. Most of all, Jesus urges pastors to keep their focus on him.
For all who are eager to see and savor the rest-giving attributes of Jesus afresh, I highly recommend this book.

Wise, measured, and profound, applying the heart of the gospel to the heart of the pastor.
—Trevin Wax, author of The Thrill of Orthodoxy
If you’re a pastor, whether you’re feeling burnt out or not, you should read this book. It will help you if you’re struggling, and it will prepare you for when later struggles come.
