In C.S. Lewis’ beloved classic, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” children from our world enter the magical world of Narnia through a special closet. Eventually, they meet up with a couple of talking beavers who describe the mighty Aslan, the Lion Son of the great Emperor-beyond-the sea. The inquisitive little Lucy is nervous about meeting a lion and asks the Mr. and Mrs. Beaver if Aslan is safe. “Safe?” said Mr Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”
The story is fun, but it’s also an allegory of Christ, salvation, and the Christian’s spiritual journey through life. If you want to live life to the fullest, Lewis warns, if you want life to be “good,” it’s not going to be safe. In fact, it’s going to be dangerous; dangerous to an empty life, dangerous to a boring life, and dangerous to an unfulfilled life.
