There Is God

A reading for Tuesday, September 9, 2014: John 10:31-42.

If we are created in the image of God, then it is also true that truly seeing a human being is like looking at God. Jesus reminds the Jews that want to arrest him in the lesson today that all human beings, and Messiah but not just Messiah, are created as sons and daughters of God. Jesus Christ and in fact all human beings bear the image of God in the world.

If you truly believed that God lived inside of you, and even more inside of those you meet and interact with today... how would that change you? How would it change how you truly see other human beings?

The mystery of incarnation is that God chooses to dwell in the world around us. Our God does not take a position of distance or platonic detachment. Our living God moves and has being all around us in our hearts and in the hearts of others. In the messiness of everyday life and goodness of everyday people, there is God. All people bear the image of God.

Look for God today in your own life and in the lives of those around you. Do the works of the Father,  performing acts of goodness and love, and God will be present more and more in the world around us.
