Not a tame lion

I finished The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe audio book today. One thing that stuck out to me (HWN) this time through was the repeated adjectives describing Aslan:

“He’s wild, you know. Not a tame lion.”

In this case, it was the beaver describing him. With Aslan as a type of Christ, I reflect on why C.S. Lewis may have chosen to describe Him as “wild.” What comes to mind is that Christ has an independent will, unrestrained by the whims of men. He responds to, but not because of, our bidding… Getting to know Aslan in these books helps broaden my understanding of this.

I’m grateful that Christ has an understanding that encompasses mine and so much more, and that He acts on this understanding in my best interest :)
