    2. I need Jesus because I have bad Mondays just like everyone else.

    3. I need Jesus because He tells me I'm worth it, even when I feel that I'm not.

    4. I need Jesus when there is a long line at chipotle.

    6. I need Jesus to help me forgive and move on.

    7. I need Jesus to help me deal with all the homophobes.

    8. I need Jesus because He knows what it's like to be mischaracterized, misunderstood, and marginalized by religious leaders and fellow believers simply for disclosing His identity.

    He used Samaritans and women as role models, and he deliberately ate with 'sinners', prostitutes and other marginalized people. He sought out lepers and the poor to declare his message of radical inclusion. At every turn, he challenged cultural norms and the exclusivist religious patriarchy.

    25. I need Jesus because He is my brother. Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind.

    26. I need Jesus because He reminds me that love is the only thing that matters.

    27. I need Him too.
