Swept Away By The Dawn Treader

If you've had the chance to read any of The Chronicles of Narnia books by C. S. Lewis (there are seven in all), you'll know there are many different ways to enter that magical land. In The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, it's the latter (a closet of coats) that's the entry point. In Prince Caspian (Return To Narnia), it's a train station that's the entry point. And in The Voyage of The Dawn Treader, it's a picture on a wall that's the entry point. The picture is of a ship sailing the sea and it just starts flooding into the room Edmund and Lucy Pevensie occupy with their cousin, Eustace. And they are swept away into the picture and onto the ship and find themselves in Narnia again for the adventure of a lifetime. Wow. (Fun.)

And did you know (I'm tearing up as I write this because it's so true!) the kingdom of God is ready to flood into your life, too, and overflow you and sweep you (overwhelmingly) away into a relationship of a lifetime with the Christ of the universe (Jesus!) who loves and created you for just such a purpose? Wow. (Fun.) \o/

Love the blog! My son and I have shared all 7 books. We enjoy them immensely. I haven't found a C. S. Lewis book I haven't liked. Aside from the beautiful fictional alegories, I enjoy the spiritual works, like Mere Christianity, The Great Divorce, and The Screwtape Letters. It would be hard to classify The Screwtape Letters, since it is satirical. But, however you read about Jesus, you can find multiple points of entry, and are always astounded when the love of God washes over you anew. Thanks for the thoughts. God Bless.
