Christ the King

Christ gives Himself in sacrifice; and that not only on Calvary. For when He was crucified He "did that in the wild weather of His outlying provinces which He had done at home in glory and gladness" (G. MacDonald). From before the foundation of the world He surrenders begotten Deity back to begetting Deity in obedience ... From the highest to the lowest, self exists to be abdicated and, by that abdication, becomes the more truly self, to be thereupon yet the more abdicated, and so forever.

- C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
