Your condition on earth might change,
But your position in Christ never will.
You’re like the heroes of Narnia—
Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy—
A prince or princess in the Narnian kingdom
Though overlooked in ordinary England.
You live in both worlds,
As First Peter calls you,
An “elect exile,”
But as the Professor reminded
The Pevensie children:
“Once a king in Narnia,
Always a king in Narnia” (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis).
I bless you to remember
Who you are when the world
Has no knowledge of your royal status.
No persecution now
Can ever thwart your
Reign with Christ forever!
