Why The Artist Needs Grace Reason # 1,231,456 - Arends

A short but deep post today ... this sobering quote from CS Lewis:

“Every poet and musician, but for Grace, is drawn away from love of the thing he tells, to love of the telling till, down in Deep Hell, they cannot be interested in God at all but only in what they say about Him.” (C.S. Lewis)

Praying for Grace today!

So keen-cutting, deep and true, Carolyn.
I've just arrived home from a hospital Thanksgiving service, in which I sang thank-you songs intended to honour of the Lord, but the celebration of the act and appreciation of others and enjoyment of the doing very easily sneak in to cloud the flow of glory and honour due to the Lord alone.
Thank you.

Hey Carolyn:

Thanks for your post. I consider Lewis one a handful of the faithful whose persistence in seeking to be real assisted me in my desire to follow. Your post is a valuable reminder to keep the main thing, the main thing.

God bless,
