Who is this JESUS anyway?

For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
We all know John 3:16. Even non-believers can recognize it and maybe even quote it. I still have an image of a guy in a rainbow wig behind home plate of televised baseball games with John 3:16 on a poster! So if this verse is so well known, why are so many ignorant as to Who Jesus is and what He came to do? This born of a virgin, never sinned in His life, provider of eveny need, healer of any and all illness, forgiven of all and every sin, sacrificing Savior, crucified upon a cross, risen from the dead JESUS . . . .
He IS God and He LOVES you and me! He simply ASKS us to join Him, but on HIS terms. He is not a fad, a social club, a hobby, or a diversion from reality. He is not a weekend event or a vacation away from it all. Do you REALLY know Him? What a safe place to be . . . in Jesus!
