In Perelandra, C.S. Lewis’s protagonist says of his friend Ransom, who has recently returned from another planet, “A Man who has been in another world does not come back unchanged.” If we think of the glory of heaven where Christ is presently at the right of the Father and if we acknowledge that we are a people who have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light, we will be changed. We were in one world, and now we are a part of a new world. If we come this realization, we will “no longer fill our stomachs with stale leftovers and scraps fallen to a dirty kitchen floor. We will smell the banquet being prepared for us. We won’t spoil our appetites with food from the table of fools. We know what our mouths are watering for.” We know today that God gives us more that we can ask or think, and we are being changed more and more as we feast with this abundant God in the kingdom of light.
