• How To Use This Book

    Let me tell you a story about how Jesus’ words impacted someone’s life in a very powerful way. Sara’s sister Alina was going through a terrible time. Her husband refused to pay child support. He moved her with their three children to another new city, and then abandoned them. She had been out of the workplace for years, in a strange new place, with no home and facing the streets. Sara gave Alina a copy of Just Jesus. “It was the only hope I could share with her. What else could I give her?” reflected Sara, with longing compassion in her voice. She was facing her own challenges in a depressed economy with their four children.

    Just the words of Jesus were the only gift Sara could offer Alina. His words had deeply touched Sara, spiritually strengthening her, helping her navigate through some challenging personal and family issues. As we focus on His words, they will naturally settle in our heart. Things that settle sometimes appear hidden, but are still present. They may be tucked away, but God brings them to light when we need them most. Alina is not out of the woods yet, but she has God’s peace in her heart, recognizing how He daily provides for her along with the children. She experiences His gentleness, sensing His soothing presence in very harsh circumstances.

  • Jesus’ words change lives. His thoughts, His perspective and His ideas have greater impact than any other words ever spoken. They are so strong yet so simple. His words compelled people to devote their livesto serving Him by serving others. His words taught and brought true happiness. They spread like wildfire to countless others that changed the world forever. Nadia was touched by the simple direct precepts Jesus offered she now implements in her own life. When her mom developed breast cancer and her dad faced open heart surgery during the same year, all she could do was pray and offer them Jesus’ words. Just Jesus carried her parents through one of the most difficult places they’d ever been in their forty year marriage. “Why hasn’t anyone thought of this sooner?” observed her dad when reading Jesus’ words. Going through open heart surgery and surviving twenty years of alcoholism, Jesus’ words were the lifeline that brought him into a place of peace, healing and well being.

He is with you right now speaking to you as He did to them. His concepts will change your life as radically now as they did back in the day! His words, ideas and thoughts are still the same.

  • The most important words ever spoken came through Jesus. Miguel loves reading Just Jesus. “It’s so simple,” he said. “What Jesus said is all we need to follow. Simply dwelling on what He says shows us what He wants of us. He makes it so clear. It’s not history. It’s just Him.” Just Jesus so deeply impacted Miguel; he shared it with his friend Jason. Jason was having a hard time being motivated. Miguel knew that if Jason would focus on what Jesus said, reading His thoughts and ideas would bring clarity to some of the issues in his life. Not anyone else. Because this is God speaking.
