On Becoming Colourless for Us

Today is the first day of spring and Easter is only three weeks away! I hope you are able to take some time to contemplate the significance of this season in your life personally. I will be posting a few meditations that hopefully will help as you and I try to wrap our minds around this awesome, unfathomable thing Christ did for us.

From Miracles by C.S. Lewis:

“In the Christian story God descends to re-ascend. . . One may think of a diver, first reducing himself to nakedness, then glancing in mid-air, then gone with a splash, vanished, rushing down through green and warm water into black and cold water, down through increasing pressure into the death-like region of ooze and slime and old decay; then up again, back to colour and light, his lungs almost bursting, till suddenly he breaks surface again, holding in his hand the dripping, precious thing that he went down to recover. He and it are both coloured now that they have come up into the light: down below, where it lay colourless in the dark, he lost his colour too.”
