I recently read all six of the Harry Potter books. And I loved them!
This news surprised my sister, but after a little explanation, she understood where I was coming from. So, please allow me to share.
These books are the story of a boy no one loved, who was lonely and seemingly forgotten. Then, one day, he learns he’s special, and that his life was spared by sacrificial love. Over the years, he faces obstacles, both mundane and extraordinary. He is pursued by an evil being who wants to destroy him. And the only thing that separates him from this evil person is the sacrificial love that has marked his life, figuratively and literally.
Throughout the novels, my mind kept wandering to Ephesians 6:12.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
And that is just what Harry Potter does, and encourages us to do. I can hardly wait for Book 7, so I can see how the story ends.
