Build a Custom Jesus Today

I wonder who was in that crowd? Who would be in the crowd today? Similar to today, many people—even those who sat in the front row—knew Jesus from a distance, if they knew him at all. Many people knew a Jesus their imagination invented, not the real Jesus. It feels good to invent the Jesus you want instead of learning …

Likewise, rooted people with a strong foundation can withstand the big storms of life. How rooted are you? When life hits you hard, …
