Just Like Jesus {Book Review}

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.

It seems like every book I read by Max Lucado becomes my favorite. Just Like Jesus is a summary of the character of Jesus and it is told in such a way as to inspire and encourage us to keep focused on Christ as a role model in how to live our lives. It is possible because "I can do all things through Him who strengthens me"! I read this book as a teenager when it first came out and I was blessed then as I am now! 

I would HIGHLY recommend this and all other Max Lucado books to anyone!
