In the reading for today Lewis recalls the moment of his conversion and details of encountering the Spirit of God. Reading his story brought memories of my own moment of realization that I needed and wanted to personal relationship with Jesus. I was blessed with parents I could share this need and desire with, after talking with my mom, she called the pastor at our school, I was attending Grace Christian Academy at that time. Pastor Max Paddock had us drive right over. I spent 30 minutes or so with Pastor Max, asking questions and answering questions and then I prayed and ask God to be my personal Lord and Savior and to forgive me of all my sins. At that moment I knew life would never be the same again.
Ephesians 4:7-13 “But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. This is why it says: “When he ascended on high, he took many captives and gave gifts to his people.” What does “he ascended” mean except that he also descended to the lower, earthly regions? He who descended is the very one who ascended higher than all the heavens, in order to fill the whole universe. So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
Psalm 19:1-6 “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; 8, nothing is deprived of its warmth.”
