A student once traveled far to India in his search for spiritual knowledge. Standing finally in front of the Guru, the Guru said to the student: Why are you here...you have Jesus.
Many westerns have turned away from Jesus's teachings due to the churches association with the church, but I have come to peace with the awareness that 1) Jesus is not the church and 2) Churches teach very little about Jesus's teachings.
So who was Jesus?
When Jesus arose from the dead and appeared to Mary Magdalene, Mary called out in awe "Teacher".
Jesus was a spiritual teacher and his teachings hold still true after over 2000 years. I want to invite you to know Jesus and read the bible, in particular the gospels in the N.T.
We don't need to travel far or look into other religions, for at our very own root....we have Jesus!
