Yesterday our pastor, Randy Grossman, returned from his vacation and
preached an excellent (as usual) message on John 17:24-26. In that
message he quoted what is today’s attached devotional. It will lift your
spirits. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Matthew 25:34 (ESV)
34 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
“It was the Unicorn who summed up what everyone was feeling. He stamped his right forehoof on the ground and neighed and then cried, ‘I have come home at last! This is my real country! I belong here. This is the land I have been looking for all my life, though I never knew it till now. The reason why we loved the old Narnia is that it sometimes looked a little like this. Bree-hee-hee! Come further up, come further in.’” [C. S. Lewis, The Last Battle, (New York: The Macmillan Publishing Company, 1956), p. 162]
