Speaker: Jon Kopp - In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, C. S. Lewis provides a very picturesque and helpful picture for us of the fear of God. Susan and Lucy ask Mr. and Mrs. Beaver to tell them about Aslan, the lion in the story who is a picture of Christ. “He is the King of the woods and the son of the great Emperor-beyond-the Sea. Don’t you know who is the King of Beasts? Aslan is a lion—the Lion, the great Lion.” “Ooh!” said Susan. “...Is he quite safe? I shall feel rather nervous about meeting a lion.” “That you will, dearie, and make no mistake,” said Mrs. Beaver, “if there’s anyone who can appear before Aslan without their knees knocking, they’re either braver than most or else just silly.” “Then he isn’t safe?” said Lucy. “Safe?” said Mr. Beaver. “Don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about being safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” This morning, Solomon is going to share with us what life is all about. Fearing God and keeping His commandments. May God use His word to help us to recognize, reverence and make room for Him in our hearts and lives.
