A sweet or biblical Jesus?

Do you have a ‘sweet Jesus’ in your heart, but not a ‘biblical Jesus’ in your mind? You need both; one will not do without the other. The biblical Jesus is also the truly sweet Jesus. Where might we find him? One of my favourite places to look for this sweet and biblical Jesus…
