Another World

“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.” — C.S. Lewis

Now, I grant that C.S. Lewis ain’t no dummy.

But on the other hand, I believe that Christ intends to redeem and rule this world: and the redemption and final state of this world will be so different from how it is today, that it might as well be another world, so far as we sinful men are concerned!

Amazingly, God has opened the door for us believers to help redeem the world, and – after the second coming – to live in it, in a sinless, immortal, and glorious state, under the authority of the only one who was born sinless and died sinless, Jesus Christ, our King and Redeemer.

His redeemed will actually be princes and judges – not only in eternity, but also (in al less profound, but still genuine, real, and effective way) in this very day.

I recommend that we seize this opportunity with both hands!
