On this day in 1950, the book The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe , by C.S. Lewis was first published. If you haven’t read it, it’s a classic story that has a lot of similar themes to Christianity. A main character, Aslan, gives up his life to save others. There are other things like loyalty, faith and hope in the story as well. Lewis is known for many Christian books.
Jesus sacrificed his life for us. He loves us that much, that he died for us. Because of that, we have salvation and grace. What does that mean? It means that if we believe in Jesus and that he died for us, we are saved from sin and have eternal glory in Heaven with him.
But Christ offered only one sacrifice for sins, and that sacrifice is good for all time. Then he sat down at the right side of God…Then he says, “I will forget their sins and never again remember the evil they have done.
Hebrews 10:12, 17 (ERV)
Dear Jesus, Thank you for dying for me. I am not worthy. I believe in you, and I believe that God sent you to die for all believers. Thank you for giving me grace and forgiveness. Amen.
