The creator of “The Chosen,” the hit TV show about Jesus and his followers, hopes the series’ lasting legacy is one focused on helping people know and “love Jesus more.”

“We’re seeing people all over the world [who are] telling us, ‘I know Jesus more. I love Jesus more. I’m reading my Bible more than ever because of the show,’” creator and director Dallas Jenkins told CBN News. “If that continues, there’s nothing greater than that.”

Jenkins, who spoke Sunday on the red carpet at the KLOVE Fan Awards in Nashville, Tennessee, also addressed some of the lessons he’s learned while making “The Chosen” over the past seven years.

“The biggest lesson is surrender always needs to come before positive or negative moments in your life,” he said. “I think if I would not have been forced by God to surrender to Him, I don’t think I would have been ready for something like this, both the positive and the negative, because I cared what people thought of me.”

Jenkins continued, “And, so, it becomes really a superpower when you stop caring what people think and you care more about what God thinks.”
