He Now Remains

Reading On the Incarnation by Athanasius was a real treat this week (especially as it coincides so well with our series of messages on the Gospel of John). I'm looking forward to discussing Athanasius and his work in our seminar this coming Lord's Day. In a justly praised introduction to On the Incarnation, C. S. Lewis pays high praise to Athanasius with these words:

It is his glory that he did not move with the times; it is his reward that he now remains when those times, as all times do, have moved away.

May God grant us the courage and the faithfulness to see what matters eternally!
