Mere Mortals? July 10, 2007

Posted by Joe in Quotes.


I got a little caught up in the schedule today (which included you brother!). But I didn’t want to miss a day, so here is a thought provoking quote from C.S. Lewis. He writes.

“You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations–these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit–immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.”

It’s an incredible reality isn’t it? What changes might take place in our lives if we would meditate upon this more and more? For one, the gospel will surely become more central, for it is the only message through which anyone can become an everlasting splendor rather than an immortal horror. Let’s aim for faithfulness brother. May we never be shy with the gospel for the good of all and the glory of God.

Catch you more tomorrow,
