Lewis: waking up to the Presence

Wednesday, April 8, 2015
    Commemoration of William Augustus Muhlenberg of New York, Priest, 1877
    Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
    —Hebrews 13:2 (NIV)
    We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito. And the incognito is not always hard to penetrate. The real labor is to remember, to attend. In fact, to come awake. Still more, to remain awake.
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer, New York: Harcourt Brace and World, 1964, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2002, p. 75 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 13:2; Isa. 58:6-7; Matt. 25:40; Rom. 12:13; Gal. 6:9; Tit. 1:8; 2 Thess. 3:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me alert to Your presence.
