Perfect Timing

Since the movie will be coming out on December 9th I thought I would bring out a relateable story I came across a few years ago from Waking the Dead by John Eldredge.

"Years ago a mother wrote CS Lewis regarding her son (age 9) and his love for The Chronicles of Narnia. The boy was feeling bad because he felt he loved Aslan (the lion hero of the story) more than Jesus. With grace and brilliance Lewis replied that he need not worry: 'For the things he loves Aslan for doing or saying are simply the things that Jesus really did and said. So that when Laurence thinks he is loving Aslan, he is really loving Jesus: and perhaps loving Him more that he ever did before.' Truth doesnt need a verse attached to it to be true. All that you love about Aslan is Jesus. "
