even in the unlikely places

Lewis makes a startling claim today in A Year with C.S. Lewis.

He says that sometimes, very ANTI Christian things can bring us closer to God's kingdom. This seems pretty counter intuitive on first examination.

But God created everything, right? All things? He didn't create all actions... so murder, incest, stealing... those are not from Him. But all of the STUFF is His. He made things. So when we look around our world, we will find Him. Paul talks about this when he says no one has an excuse, because the wonders of God's creation attest to His existence and His creative power.

The take home lesson, at least that I see, tonight ... is that we don't have to be afraid. He is in everything around us. He will be found, no matter where you look for Him, if you're looking.

Seek, and you will find.

God, thank You for filling everything with Your presence. Help us find You in all things.

It only takes a spark to keep a fire burning, pause long enough to look around for Gods surprises for you.
