Thoughts inspired by C.S. Lewis’ Till We Have Faces.

“We must go to your true judges now. I am to bring you there.”

“My judges?”

“Why, yes, child. The gods have been accused by you. Now’s their turn.”

“I cannot hope for mercy.”

“Infinite hopes — and fears — may both be yours. Be sure that, whatever else you get, you will not get justice.”

“Are the gods not just?”

“Oh no, child. What would become of us if they were?”

Till We Have Faces, C.S. Lewis

“You are not fair!” That’s a phrase God hears often.

We feel wronged by Him when something goes not the way we expected.

Fox’ wise quote from Till We Have Faces brings it into perspective.

It’s a good thing God is not completely just toward us.

It’s an amazing news that He also has grace and mercy.

  • So thankful for grace and mercy. Lots of conversation in the Christian world these days about the balance of grace and justice. Rich Mullins wrote a song that includes a line something like this:

    So if I stand let me stand on the promise

    That you will pull me through

    And if I can’t, let me fall on the grace

    That first brought me to You

    Zenichka, I enjoy your writing and continue to love your new site.

    • That’s a great song, thanks for sharing, David 🙂

      And indeed, thankfully people finally start talking about these things 🙂 If not for them, the earth would not be filled with 6 billion people.
