One of my mom’s dear friends, Julie, has become a dear friend of mine as I have gotten older and crossed that strange boundary between parents’ friends and no longer being a child. Julie has an amazing penchant for writing, and every time I read her blog I am blown away by her insight and her heart.
An avid reader, Julie has a gift for pulling rich meaning from the words on pages both modern and from ages past. So today instead of writing myself, I’m pointing you to her words pulled from her readings of Prince Caspian, which will then point you to Christ.
“[Aslan] urges [Lucy] not to abandon her vision of him, but to return and tell the others the way and move forward… Obedience begets obedience, in community. Oh, the grace of Christ!”
Obedience begets obedience, in community. It’s so easy to let the pendulum swing too far to liberty instead of being the iron that sharpens each other in our walking with the Lord. As we abide in Him, it will move us to obedience together.
Let’s all press forward and encourage each other in our abiding and our obedience.
