Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

infinite joy

“If there lurks in most modern minds
the notion that to desire our own good
and to eagerly hope for
the enjoyment of it is a bad thing,
I submit that this notion...
is no part of the Christian faith.
Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises
of reward and the staggering nature
of the rewards promised in the gospels,
it would seem that our Lord finds
our desires not too strong, but too weak.
We are half-hearted creatures,
fooling about with drink and sex and ambition
when infinite joy is offered us,
like an ignorant child who wants
to go on making mud pies in a slum
because he cannot imagine
what is meant by the offer
of a holiday at the sea.
We are far too easily pleased.”
- C.S. Lewis
(The Weight of Glory)
