Jesus: The God Who Knows Your Name

Jesus knows your daily struggles. And He has felt everything you have ever felt. “Don’t settle for a cursory glance or a superficial understanding. Look long into the heart of Christ and you’ll see it. Grace and life. Forgiveness of sin. The defeat of death. This is the hope he gives.” — Max Lucado
