TRUTH

Aslan says,

“though the Witch knew the Deep Magic, there is a magic deeper still which she did not know.  Her knowledge goes back only to the dawn of time.  But if she could have looked a little further back…she would have read…a different incantation.  She would have known that when a willing victim who had committed no treachery was killed in a traitor’s stead, the Table would crack and Death itself would start working backwards …

The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis was written as a child’s tale of redemption.  Even though it was filled with fantastical characters and mythology, Lewis managed to interweave is faith into the story.  Of course this is simply a story.  The one that it’s derived from is true.

A willing victim did lay down His life for humanity.  He took the place of all of us when He was sacrificed on the cross.  Jesus conquered death – even a brutal death without cause, without blame, without protest.  He did it because it was the only way.

Today, we’re resting in the afterglow of Easter.  The days of Lent are behind us.  The difficult days of the Passion are over.  The tomb has been found empty and the Savior has risen indeed.  The battle is over.  The victory has been won.  End of story?  Not yet.

Now what do we do with this wonderful gift?  God has blessed us with eternal life.  The worse thing we can do is hide it within our own sheltered little lives.  It’s too great a gift not to share.  When Jesus made that final sacrifice, He wasn’t doing so for just a select few. He came for all sinners – the Hitlers, the Charles Mansons, the Judases, the most sinful of all – YOU and ME.  His death would have meant nothing otherwise.

His resurrection assures us that we will reap the benefits of His holy kingdom when we pass from this earth into heaven.  He’s made that possible because of His great love for His creation.  Now that this wonderful news has been given to us, our hearts should be so filled with joy, that we cannot contain it.  Spread the Gospel!  Share it with everyone.  We all need it.  It is our life – our connection to our loving God – our salvation – our freedom.

Today we can be sure that heaven is real – that God is real – that salvation is truth and it’s ours.

CHRIST IS RISEN – HE IS RISEN INDEED!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Kathie, I needed this post today. I confess I was feeling a little down today after this Resurrection weekend. Ok, Lord, so what now? You answered the question.
