Hollis asked his Facebook friends to complete the sentence, “Jesus is …”, and received the following replies.
Lord of my life. Lord of all.
The son of God and redeemer of all mankind.
Jesus is my honest, forthright, spunky companion on life’s journey.
Jesus is my friend, guiding me through life with love and companionship.
My guiding light, my friend, my comforter, my strength.
Jesus is Love.
Jesus is my brother!
Outspoken and outrageous!
