Desire Unfulfilled

In his book, Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis writes on desire, and on the nagging sense that some fulfillment could just be fuller:

If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world” (Note 1).

Lewis goes on to caution the Believer not to be vexed by non-believers criticism of Christian (Heavenly) Hope (Note 2):

“There is no need to be worried by facetious people who try to make the Christian hope of Heaven ridiculous by saying they ‘do not want to spend eternity playing harps’. The answer to such people is that if they cannot understand books written for grown-ups, they should not talk about them.” [Paraphrased]

Go forth, then, in confident hope: “And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Jesus, circa 33 AD, Matthew 28:29b NASB

  1. Implicitedly, The Kingdom of God (Heaven)
  2. A biblical definition of Christian Hope: a confident expectation, a firm assurance regarding things that are unclear and unknown; hope is a fundamental component of the life of the righteous.
