My hero is one you hear of all the time. He is the saviour, my rock, the king, God and so much more. He is my inspiration. The one who I strive to live as. His name is Jesus Christ. I’m sure you hear the saying W.W.J.D all the time, but do you ever take it to heart? I try to. Jesus is the only perfect role model out there. If everyone acted as Jesus did this world would have no stains. People would love one another compassionately and there would be no more sorrows.

He went against the popular decisions to stand up for what He knew was right. He walked a lonely road that led him to a painful death. Jesus was hurt constantly by the people He loved and was dying for. He took the beating that we deserve. He let people spit on him and call him names for no reason. He chose to get nailed to a cross so we can have eternal joy. What more can you ask for out of a person? Jesus wept for us and died for us. His pain and sorrow was a deep as an ocean. There are no words to describe the love He has for us. He still hurts every time we turn...
