We are now officially and fully engaged in the season of Lent. As we continue this journey may we take seriously these words from C.S. Lewis:
“He [God] works on us in all sorts of ways. But above all, He works on us through each other. Men are mirrors, or “carriers” of Christ to other men. Usually it is those who know Him that bring Him to others. That is why the Church, the whole body of Christians showing Him to one another, is so important. It is so easy to think that the Church has a lot of different objects – education, building, missions, holding services…The Church exists for no other purpose but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs. If they are not doing that, all the cathedrals, clergy, missions, sermons, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time. God became man for no other purpose. It is even doubtful, you know, whether the whole universe was created for any other reason.”
Read those words again.
“He works on us through each other.”
“Usually it is those who know Him that bring Him to others.”
Are you being a mirror or carrier of Christ?
Are you regularly displaying the love and kindness of God to others?
May God’s grace and peace be with you during this Lenten season, and always.
