C.S.Lewis on the Resurrection

god in dockHere’s another lovely quote from C.S.Lewis for your Evernote books. It comes from an essay entitled “The Grand Miracle” in God in the Dock, and he’s speaking of the resurrection of Christ.

“To be sure, it feels wintry enough still: but often in the very early spring it feels like that. Two thousand years are only a day or two by this [God’s] scale. A man really ought to say, ‘The Resurrection happened two thousand years ago’ in the same spirit in which he says, ‘I saw a crocus yesterday.’ Because we know what is coming behind the crocus. The spring comes slowly down this way; but the great thing is that the corner has been turned. . . It remains with us to follow or not, to die in this winter, or to go on into that spring and that summer.”

It’s a lovely little book full of similarly lovely thoughts, metaphors, and quotes.
