THIS AND THIS….FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW…….

C. S. Lewis wrote years ago that “pain is God’s megaphone to a deaf world.” In that way, some tragedies may serve as wake-up calls for spiritually sleeping people. In a way, “tragedy” is a big reason why the cross and crucifixion of Christ still grip our imagination. There is something so profound about Calvary that even people whose religion has nothing to do with Christianity, even people who reject Christ both intellectually and verbally, nevertheless are gripped by the story. Thank God, perhaps, that He allows tragedy to so grab people.
