I posted this blog post earlier today on my churches blog, “Thoughts From MVPC,” but wanted to share it here as well. Enjoy!
On the old leather chair in my office is a stack of books either by or about C.S. Lewis. You see I am in the process of immersing myself in his writing before having the once in a lifetime opportunity to travel to Oxford, England to visit a friend who happens to be living at “The Kilns,” Lewis’s home for over thirty years.
While at this point I am somewhat overwhelmed by the thought of having such an opportunity, I look forward to being in a place where many influential Christian prose were were composed (pardon the rhyme). After all, the works of Lewis have helped many to understand the truths of the Bible and what it means to be a Christian.
My friend Ryan who is staying at The Kilns has a similar desire to express the truths of scripture in such a way that people can digest them, and allow them to transform their lives.
While most of us will never write a book, on theological topics or otherwise, I do believe that we all have the opportunity to express the truths of scripture through the way we live out or faith. That’s powerful.
The question we have to ask ourselves is are we accurately expressing the truths of scripture? Are we showing God’s love to those around us? Or are we doing just the opposite?
I believe those are questions we all need to wrestle with as we attempt to become more and more like Christ.
I can’t wait to share my adventure to “Jack’s” house with you when I return!
