In the Footsteps of Jesus

So opposite the stereotype
Power used only for others
Living definition of a hero
Jesus...a Man of joy!
Hanging on the cross
What a Guy!
He loves you SO much!


He loves you.  He loves you so much!

A touchable, very real Jesus laughs with a little girl. (Bruce Marchiano in "Matthew")
I get asked a lot, "What’s the most significant thing you learned through the whole adventure?"  It may sound crazy, but it’s something I’d been hearing all my life.  Funny thing is, I don’t know that I ever truly heard it:   "He loves you.  He loves you so much."  It doesn’t matter who you are, or how many mistakes you’ve made, or what anyone thinks of you, or what you may think of yourself.  It doesn’t matter if you doubt it, laugh at it, or if you love it.  There’s nothing you can do to change it or make it go away, and it’s as real as the ink on this page:
