Just Like Jesus (Large Print)by Max Lucado
Synopses & Reviews
God loves you just the way you are, but he refuses to leave you there. He wants you to be just like Jesus.
Can you think of a better offer?
Jesus felt no guilt; God wants you to feel no guilt. Jesus had no bad habits; God wants to do away with yours. Jesus had no fears; God wants the same for you. Jesus had no anxiety about death; you needn't either. God's desire, his plan, his ultimate goal is to make you into the image of Christ.
But how does this change occur? And why does the change seem so slow? If God wants me to be just like Jesus, why do I still seem just like me?
In Just Like Jesus, Max Lucado helps you answer these questions. He helps you understand God's wonderful ways of transformation. Would you like to know more? Then read on. And remember: God loves you just way you are, but he refuses to leave you there. He wants you to be just like Jesus.
Where did we get this idea that we can't change? From whence come statements such as, It's just my nature to worry. I'll always be pessimistic. I'm just that way. I can't help the way I react. I have a bad temper. Such thoughts are not from God. He can no more leave a life unchanged than a mother can leave a tear untouched. His plan for you is nothing short of a new heart. If you were a car, God would want control of your engine. If you were a computer, God would claim the software and the hard drive. If you were an airplane, He'd take His seat in the cockpit. But you are a person, so God wants to change your heart. Max Lucado tells how God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you there. He wants you to have a heart like His. He wants you to be Just Like Jesus.
In "Just Like Jesus", master storyteller Max Lucado portrays the image of changing from a sinful being--filled with guilt, doubt, anxiety and bad habits--to Christlikeness. Lucado asks, "What if, for one day, Jesus became you?" With this simple premise, Lucado tells how God loves people just the way they are, but Christ refuses to leave them that way. An award-winning work now in comfort print.
