Narnia: The Last Day

The final paragraph of the final Narnia book by C.S. Lewis gives us a beautiful picture of what lies ahead…

“And as [Aslan] spoke, He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them.  And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after.  But for them it was only the beginning of the real story.  All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story, which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” 

I’m looking forward to that day.  And I’m going to live this day in light of that one.

  1. My goal each day–to live with the knowing that this world is not my final home! Looking forward to the great forever home with Jesus, and all my loved ones and friends who have entered that life before me. Doing my best to help others decide to make heaven their final home, also.

    Sometimes I have a real hard time keeping the idea of an eternity view, when I don’t even know how I’m going to get through today. The only thing I’ve found that really helps is starting my day with reading my Bible and prayer. It’s not always easy, and sometimes I just don’t even want to, but I have learned that my days are always better when they start this way.

    • Gordon,

      Ecclesiastes 3 says that God has “put eternity in the hearts of men.” I think you hit the nail on the head–solid spiritual disciplines like prayer and reading God’s word (and I would add staying connected to Christian community) really keep us centered and balanced. If God is ultimate reality and our sin draws us away from Him, reading His word and dwelling in His presence on a daily basis really bring us back to reality. Good stuff-
