Far Better Up Ahead

Scan-001

One more Lewis.

The best part of being a Christian is knowing that better things are ahead.  We are promised the greatest reward out there:  eternal life with Jesus in the best place ever in complete joy without any suffering at all.

Super awesome.

As long as we stay focused on that far into the future, we can’t go wrong.  Things will happen here on Earth that are going to bring us pain and struggles, but we will leave all of them behind.  Just drop them and go.

Why not do it now?  Why worry?  Live life.  Yearn for better things.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.

Life is to Live

There you go.  Not going to say too much more. Only this:  I encourage you to go out and live it today.  Make some experiences rather than just think about them or worry about them or plan them.  Live it.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.

Our Heart Yearns

Scan-046

C.S. Lewis was a wise man, from as far as I can gather.  He at least has some really good quotes!  I have three to share with you this week.

I love the word YEARNS, and it is a word that we just don’t hear anymore–

  • have an intense feeling of longing for something, typically something that one has lost or been separated from.
  • be filled with compassion or warm feeling.
    synonyms are:  long for, pine for, crave, desire, want, wish for, hanker for, covet, lust after/for, pant for, hunger for, burn for, thirst for, ache for, eat one’s heart out for, have one’s heart set on

And it carries so much meaning!  We do yearn for heaven.  We don’t just want it, we search for it with intensity.  So many people are searching for that one thing that will bring them joy–and when we do finally surrender to Christ and feel that joy–we understand.  As Lewis says, Earth cannot supply it.  Only Heaven.

I am so glad we have found Heaven and joy.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.
