C.S. and I don’t see things eye to eye. I believe he is perhaps one of the greatest theologians I read. I so want to be in this place. Here is a quote to reflect on today. I think Mr. Lewis is on to something huge.
“Can you die (to self)? I learned how to die the same summer I learned I was a Christian. It’s the easiest thing in the world. You don’t have to do anything. All you have to do is stop doing something. You have to learn to stop trying to preserve yourself. Once you let yourself go headfirst without worry or landing on anything, you’re a die-hard”—C.S. Lewis
I feel his freedom and abandon and sheer one-mindedness. Letting go of all the things we hold on to with such tight fists brings amazing freedom from the bondage and ties to this world. I feel his joy, like he’s free floating headfirst without worry for the landing, knowing well that he is in the Hands of his sure and catching Lord. I feel his courage in nothing being impossible with Christ. Maybe this is a simple truth, but rarely is it easy.
