A preacher was requested by family members to visit a man in a mental institution who thought he was Jesus. When the preacher introduced himself, the man replied, "Bless you, my son." The preacher asked if he were Jesus and he replied that he was. So, the preacher excused himself and said he would be back in a couple of minutes. The preacher returned with a measuring tape and some lumber and nails. He measured the man’s arms and height, and then he began nailing the boards into a cross. The man asked what he was doing. The preacher said, "You know what I’m doing. I’m helping you fulfill your destiny!" At that, the man cried out, "I’m not Jesus! I’m not Jesus!"

No, he wasn’t Jesus, but when you invite Jesus into your heart you can become like Jesus.
