Everything necessary

There's nothing spiritual about saying you're seeking more of Jesus. Because He can't give you any more. He can give you more awareness about Whom you already have, but He can't give you any more of Himself. You've got Him, and He's got you. The needs that preoccupy us so much of the time, that keep us focused on ourselves, have already been met in Christ.— The Rest of the Gospel: When the partial Gospel has worn you out, page 178

Maybe that is why scripture says that he has given everything necessary for life and godliness...ya think?

So how then do we "make every effort" and what does it mean to "supplement our faith..."vs 5? I've been trying to understand 5-15 in light 3,4 from which you quoted. It's been a good struggle. In think I'm closing in on an answer, but would appreciate your thoughts.
Love, Joel.
