I’m on a C.S. Lewis kick. This guy’s a genius. Here’s my favorite one…of the day:
“It isn’t Narnia, you know,” sobbed Lucy. “It’s you. We shan’t meet you there. And how can we live, never meeting you?”
“But you shall meet me, dear one,” said Aslan.
“Are -are you there too, Sir?” said Edmund.
“I am,” said Aslan. “But there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there.” -C.S. Lewis
For those of you who have received your endowment, read that one more time.
How comforting it is to know there’s a Plan, and especially to know there’s a reason why we’re even here. Heavenly Father will never send any one of His children down to earth without the innate knowledge of something Bigger. However, it’s up to us to discover it for ourselves, whether we realize that or not. That’s why I’m in New York for eighteen months. I’m guiding people to discover there’s something more, something to hope for, even if that something hasn’t found them yet. With each hour I study, my desire to unlock more keys of mystery increases, and then I can be more guided and more inspired to help others who haven’t quite found their own reason yet.
But we as Christians have a huge job while in the midst of all this. It’s not only to find out what our name is, but what our name means.
