mere christianity . by c.s.Lewis

.
The main thing this chapter is about, is that God took on the life of a baby, a man, lived and breathed and spoke of who He was and what it meant.  He died a physically terrible human death, and then came back from that into life.  
Also, that the natural life of each of us is something self-centered and obstinate.  It does not like anything stronger or higher that would make it feel small or weak.
That your part and mine is to believe that He is Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, and to draw close to Him, and to lay ourself open to Him.  
And within those actions of the heart and mind is the wonderful mystery of the Holy Spirit and connection with the God of Abraham, Moses, David, Isaac, and Joseph.  The God Almighty.  A life with, and belonging to, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I have come here from God. I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say.  You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.  Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!  Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?  Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
