I love Jesus. I do not worship him, but my heart is brimming with love for his sense of divine self and humanity given to others. He was a wonderful being divinely created for a higher purpose for us. I love him for who he was, and who he will be eternally as a prophet, messenger, and physical representation of the love that God has for humans sent as a Mercy to us.
