Overview

Do you find yourself picking through circumstances like children plucking daisy petals attempting to figure out whether or not God loves you?  If you find yourself least certain of his love in those critical moments when you most need to trust him, there is hope for you.  Where?  At the one event in human history that forever secured your place in the Father’s heart—the cross where Jesus allowed sin and shame to be consumed in his own body so that you could freely embrace a relationship with his Father.  There you will discover that what he always wanted was not the fearful subservience of slaves, but the loving affection of sons and daughters.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Understanding God's love requires not a classroom lecture but a long bath.  In He Loves Me, Wayne Jacobsen fills the tub and invites us to soak in real life, the inner life of the Trinity.  'What Really Happened on the Cross' is worth reading five or six times, then sinking quietly and deeply into its life-giving water."
-Dr. Larry Crabb, author of The Papa Prayer, SoulTalk, and Shattered Dreams

"For those of us who are longing to 'live loved', I cannot recommend a better follow-up to The Shack than this book.  It is an exploration and adventure into the heart of the God we hoped was truly there, and who loves each of us in particular with an everlasting love."
-William Young, author of The Shack

"The author explores how to increase one’s confidence in God's love. He compares doubters to children "plucking daisy petals," who believe that their suffering means that God doesn’t love them. With subtle humor, Jacobsen says to "toss that daisy aside." Using seamless narratives and a rich vocal presentation, he points the way to an intimate, vibrant relationship with Christ that begins at the cross with free will and choice. His powerful narration contrasts guilt with the intimacy and affection freely offered by God. Deep faith, he says, recognizes the eternal choices of heaven or hell. Comparing life to Monopoly, he admonishes listeners to choose wisely and to use their "Get Out of Hell Free" card."

I founds this book a great conclusion to his others books ("The Shack" and "So you don't want to go to church anymore?"). Mr. Jacobsen is able to communicate how much God loves us and how He has done all the work. Our job is to only trust Him and the then enjoy the life He has given us. Very refreshing. Wish the church in America would get hold of this and preach it rather than all the 'doing' that is preached.

This is one book that I did not want to end!! I felt it has the Truth to bring freedom for people under religious practices into just being in a love relationship with Jesus. It brings an end to the do's and dont's that some organized religions place on people. The work of Christ is about the love relationship He wants to have with us, nothing more nothing less. This book describes that beautifully!! I would highly recommend it because it is inspriting - majoring on the major of the gospel.

After reading 'The Shack', I was looking for something that would help me put my new-found understanding of what relationship with God can look like into practice. This book did it. It is a biblical look at God's love for us and how it is the foundation of trust and true life-changing relationship.

Very encouraging book, written in an easy style. The message of God's love for us is one that we need to hear and live every day...this book will help us learn how to live in His love. A book that you will read and re-read again and again.

Thank you for sharing from your heart. The Holy Spirit has used this book to help me to step out of a shame based way of living into the beginning of an authentic life in Christ. BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOUR COMMINITY.
