Glory

Posted: June 27, 2013 by doulos tou Theou in Christianity, Discipleship

The sense that in this universe we are treated as strangers, the longing to be acknowledged, to meet with some response, to bridge some chasm that yawns between us and reality, is part of our inconsolable secret.

And surely, from this point of view, the promise of glory, in the sense described, becomes highly relevant to our deep desire. For glory means good report with God, acceptance by God, response, acknowledgment, and welcome into the heart of things. The door on which we have been knocking all our lives will open at last.

— C. S. LewisThe Weight of Glory(New York, NY: HarperOne, 2001), 40-41
