More of Him (Repost)

In the same set of emails a the previous Seth Godin post, I got this one from Max Lucado. Amazing how they fit “hand-in-glove”.

When Christ is great–our fears are not! A big God translates into big courage. A small view of God generates no courage. A limp, puny, fireless Jesus has no power over cancer cells, corruption, identity theft, stock-market crashes, or global calamity.

A packageable, portable Jesus might fit well in a purse or on a shelf, but he does nothing for your fears. In the book Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis, the character Lucy sees Aslan, the lion, for the first time in many years. He’s changed.

“Aslan,” she says, “you’re bigger.”

“That’s because you are older, little one,” he answers.

“Not because you are?”

“I am not. But every year you grow, you will find me bigger.”

And so it is with Christ. The longer we live in him, the greater he becomes in us. It’s not that he changes, but that we do. We see more of him!
