Job 25:4 How then can a mortal be righteous before God? How can one born of woman be pure?

            There is a very poignant moment in C.S. Lewis’ story The voyage of the Dawn Treader. In that moment Eustace, a boy transformed into  dragon, despairs and is afraid for his future and begins to cry wanting desperately to be transformed. In that moment he meets the lion Aslan who with his powerful claws literally scrapes the dragon scales away transforming the beast back into a boy. This picture which Lewis never really claimed as allegorical nevertheless points to the fact that, in answer to the question posed in this verse, a source, outside of ourselves is necessary to “claw away the scales” of our sinful selves in order that we might be restored to righteousness. Jesus is that source.

            The apostle Paul asked, “24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?  (Romans 7) Happily he was able to answer the question himself in the very next verse. 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
