“Let in the blaze of the risen sun” by C.S. Lewis

“‘We know not what we shall be’; but we may be sure we shall be more, not less, than we were on earth. Our natural experiences (sensory, emotional, imaginative) are only like the drawing, like pencilled lines on flat paper.

If they vanish in the risen life, they will vanish only as pencil lines vanish from the real landscape, not as a candle flame that is put out but as a candle flame which becomes invisible because someone has pulled up the blind, thrown open the shutters, and let in the blaze of the risen sun.”

–C. S. Lewis, “Transposition,” in The Weight of Glory: And Other Addresses (New York: HarperCollins, 1949/2001), 111.

  1. The window is open, the blind is up, and the blaze of the risen Son is calling forth the Joel 2 Army worldwide. God is doing it again, playing a full orchestral symphony even with our limited ‘pianos’ and signs and wonders are following. Let’s go army!!!
