I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“What we have been told is how we men can be drawn into Christ – can become part of that wonderful present which the young Prince of the universe wants to offer to His Father – that present which is Himself and therefore us in Him. It is the only thing we were made for. And there are strange, exciting hints in the Bible that when we are drawn in, a great many other things in Nature will begin to come right. The bad dream will be over: it will be morning.” – C.S. Lewis
That present – that wonderful present – Christ Himself presented to the Father. What a stunning picture! I know the love and joy I’ve felt when given gifts from my loved ones, but I imagine those are only a fraction of the love and joy the Father feels in His Son. And when we are in Christ, we are a part of that very present: the Father’s inheritance in His Son. Whoa. Goodbye, bad dream; hello, morning! Amen!
