― C.S. Lewis
This quote from C.S. Lewis has impacted my life immensely. I have meditated on the statement frequently and often use the quote in my own presentations and teachings. If Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords, our relationship with Him has to be the most important thing in our lives.
How many of us are truly making that relationship with Christ a priority in our lives? Thinking about this quote from C.S. Lewis always reminds me of the Scripture verses related to being lukewarm. (See Revelation 3: 15-16) I know that I am not cold in regard to my relationship with Christ. The question now becomes a bit more daunting. Am I on fire with love for the Lord, or am I simply lukewarm? The consequences of being lukewarm are frightful.
As we draw near to bringing this liturgical year to a close, let us pray for a fresh fire to be ignited within us. May the Holy Spirit truly penetrate our inmost beings and set us on fire with love of God.
