Narnia Devotional 7: Aslan Grows



Find everything Tolkien at Tolkien Town

In the film, Lucy hugs Aslan and says, “You’ve grown.” Aslan replies, “Every year you grow, so shall I.”
Teenagers, especially those who have grown up in church, can sometimes have a “been there, done that” approach to God. They know the Sunday School stories; they can recite the books of the Bible; they’ve been to countless Vacation Bible Schools, Mom’s Day Outs, camps, retreats, rallies, concerts, seminars, and workshops. No wonder they think that they have Christianity figured out.
They don’t realize how little they understand God.
He’s unfathomable, unknowable – and yet He has made Himself known to us. We cannot imagine His unlimited power, intelligence, or wisdom – and yet He has given us His Word.

As you grow and gain greater thinking skill, you’ll gain an ability to see more and more of who God is, what He has done, and what He can do. Here are a few Scriptures that reinforce this concept:
* When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 1 Corinthians 13:11
* “…and become mature, attaining the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:13
* “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection…” Philippians 3:10
