In modern culture we have become enamored with celebrities and famous people. Sometimes people are so charismatic, talented, beautiful, intelligent, winsome, or successful that they seem bigger than life. But no person is bigger than life! Deep down inside every human being has the same struggle with sin and the same frustration of failure and insecurity. Jesus is the only one who can bear the weight of being your Savior – because he is divine, perfect, and an endless source of life.
