A Life That Makes Sense… Sort of

From Sacred Space today:

“When we speak of ‘letting your light shine before others’ what are we talking about?… It means living in such a way that our lives would not make sense if God did not exist.”

I like this description and find it sufficiently challenging to be an ongoing question for reflection.

In what way do I live that only makes sense because of the God who I believe exists?…divx after school special

  1. Without God I am nothing

    His light defines me

    His light cuts across






    and Religion

    Because of Him

    I am loved

    Because of Him

    I must share Agape

    Across all degrees and divisions

    “Letting His light shine before others”

    As the Gospel of Christ is told and retold

    by my life’s journey through here.

  2. “Suppose we have only dreamed, or made up, all those things – trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a good deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom is the only world. Well, it strikes me as a pretty poor one. And that’s a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We’re just babies making up a game, if you’re right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That’s why I’m going to stand by the play-world. I’m on Aslan’s side even if there isn’t any Aslan to lead it. I’m going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn’t any Narnia…. [W]e’re leaving your court at once and setting out in the dark to spend our lives looking for Overland.”

  3. Our ability to dream and create in order to believe in something greater than ourselves is what marks us children of God. It is in our childlike faith that we are most able to come to Him and most vulnerable to the darkness. And, isn’t the dream we dream of Aslan the light that shines for others to see? So all may gather around the story of Him bound as one light in the darkness of this place?
