Followers: C.S. Lewis

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10

This Sunday we talked about gifts (or talents). We saw that God gives each of us different gifts. And, it does not matter which gift we have been given because all gifts are important, all gifts meet a need and all gifts are from God. Rather, what’s important is that we share that gift with others. Just as C.S. Lewis did. C.S. Lewis was creative. He had a way with words. He was able to reach many people with his writings.

Her are some C.S. Lewis quotes to get you thinking.

  • “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen:not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.”
  • “To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
  •  “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching”
  • “True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less”
  • “I never exactly made a book. It’s rather like taking a dictation. I was given things to say”
