Lessons from My Cat

Genesis 1:27- So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

This morning as I sat on the back porch enjoying the morning and a hot cup of coffee, I noticed something. My very ordinary house cat sat looking off in the distance. As I glanced at him, he looked to me just like a majestic lion or a mighty tiger surveying the terrain for prey. Then he moved and was "Bobby, the ordinary again", but for a moment he was "Bobby, made in the image of a greater cat". I heard God speak in that simple moment that we are that way. Just as the house cat has been made in the image or likeness of the greater cats, I or we have been made in His image. Most of the time I look nothing like my Creator God, but from time to time when I am completely unaware I just know others can see the likeness. I know it must be true of me because I have seen it in other people. When they say a fitting word or give a much needed hug, I see God in them. Then in a flash we are ordinary again. My prayer today is that I will spend more time bearing the image of my Creator so that others my know Him and His Resurrection Power.
