The succinctness of this quote from D. Willard pin-points why one should consider this historical figure, Jesus Christ, as more than just a cool teacher, or good man. Amazingly, today he can be sought and found. He can provide meaning, hope and direction... someone truly worthy of getting to know.
"Jesus’ enduring relevance is based on his historically proven ability to speak to, to heal and empower the individual human condition. He matters because of what he brought and what he still brings to ordinary human beings, living their ordinary lives and coping daily with their surroundings. He promises wholeness for their lives. In sharing our weakness, he gives us strength and imparts through his companionship a life that has the quality of eternity."I encourage reading more: The Divine Conspiracy (pg. 13)
