Book Review: "Jesus is for You" By Judah Smith
What would it be like if someone were completely, 100 percent for you?
The loser. The rising star. The drug addict. The good Christian kid gone bad. The undeserving overwhelmed with gratitude. Whoever you are and wherever you’ve been—Jesus is for you.
Not when you clean up your act or when do the right thing or when put your life back together.
Jesus is for you—in the midst of now. Whether you woke up amazed by your blessings or shamed by the worst mistake of your life. Jesus is for you and with you, and He’s not going anywhere.
The heartfelt and honest stories in these pages reveal what it means to experience Jesus and discover the real life He promises. With insight from New York Times–bestselling author Judah Smith and backed by Scripture, this book will allow you breathe deeply the profound truth that Jesus is for you.

This book is a fun little read to pick up and page through here and there. I personally love reading the quotes from Author, Judah Smith. He writes in a great way that makes you realize more of God's love! One of my favorite quotes from the books is, "When we focus on His goodness, His power, and His grace, we are hardly even aware of what is happening, but we begin to change. We begin to be more like Jesus. Another one that got be really thinking was "God is not in a hurry to fix us. Our behavior is not His first priority. We are His first Priority. Loving us is His main Concern." So many quotes will have you thinking and praying and looking at scriptures. This book is definitely one I want to read then reread again when I am having a bad day but then hand it off to someone to needs some love!
Another neat feature of this book is the pictures on each page. Their are beautiful nature pictures to adventure pictures.
The book also has short testimony stories that are sure to increase faith for anyone who reads them. I love this quick pick me up book that is full of love, mercy, grace, and truth!
