Each day we will select an extract from the Narnia novels, The Screwtape Letters or Mere Christianity, combined with a Bible passage (not necessarily restricted to Luke’s gospel), something to think about, a prayer, and an action (usually from @40Acts).
We’d love it, if you’re blogging, that you draw attention to other resources online that we can also connect with.
“When He [God] talks of their losing their selves, He means only abandoning the clamour of self-will; once they have done that, He really gives them back all their personality, and boasts (I am afraid, sincerely) that when they are wholly His they will be more themselves than ever.”
Bible: Matthew 16:24 http://bible.cc/matthew/16-24.htm
Think: How much does this encourage us that God wants us to be uniquely ourselves?
Pray: We thank you that you have made us as we are, love us as we are, and that we can remain wholly ourselves whilst wholly yours.
