He Is Bigger Than You

The Chronicles of Narnia has some of the most beautiful imagery of God in modern fiction. In one of the novels, Mr. Beaver says, “Aslan is…the great Lion.” “

Ooh” says Susan. “I’d thought he was a man. Is he safe? I’d be nervous meeting a lion.”

“Safe?” says Mr. Beaver. “Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King I tell you!”

I believe that sometimes, we tend to create images of Jesus that make him look meek, mild, and almost boring. Maybe we do that because we prefer a god that doesn’t really challenge us. We prefer a god who feels safe and easy to understand. 

Jesus walked on water, appeared before his apostles in dazzling light, turned water into wine, flipped tables in the temple and told dead people to get up (and they listened). Our God is anything but tame and boring! He’s mighty. Our understanding of safety in relationship to God needs to change because our God is good. 

We can trust him and know that even when we don’t understand what he is doing, even when life isn’t going how we planned, even when he’s asking us to do something that we don’t think we are equipped to do…he is GOOD. “He’s the King I tell you!”
