Mirror Christianity

Aslan the lion is the Christ-like figure in the Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

A lion prowls unseen by most.
He stalks my pride and hears me boast
of grabbing tigers by the tail
and doing things my way.

And Aslan is quite quick to chide
reminding me of times I’ve lied.
He guides me to a looking glass
so I can see my sin.

But as I gaze into the mirror
and glimpse the lion standing near,
I am encouraged by the fact
He will not let me go.

The true reflection that I see
(in spite of what I’ve failed to be)
provides a peek of Aslan’s grace
reminding me I’m loved.

This King of Beasts is hardly safe,
but He is good for Heaven‘s sake.
My tarnished image in the mirror
is not what Aslan sees.
