A perspective on Faith by C.S.Lewis

Happy Friday everyone,

C.S. Lewis said: "To have faith in Christ means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way. Not doing these things in order to be saved, but because He has begun to save you already. Not hoping to get to Heaven as a reward for your actions, but inevitably wanting to act in a certain way because a first faint gleam of Heaven is already inside you.”

So, my question today is, what do you think C.S. Lewis meant by this and how can you apply this statement to your life going forward?

God Bless,
