K9 Companion (or the church dog)



Our church has a frequent courtyard visitor.  Her name is Bella, a dog that lives three blocks down the street and follows her seven, two-leged siblings to church. As her family runs into Sunday School, Bella finds a comfortable spot in our courtyard.  She typically plops beside a door.  She bothers no one.  She often never moves.  She simply waits.

I’ve been meditating in recent weeks over the powerful truth of John 14:18.  I preached the verse in November and the theological truth keeps turning in my mind.

 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

John 14:18

Reminds me of the faithfulness of a furry friend.

Yet, as we know, it is a tad silly to compare God to a K9 companion.  For God is our Creator, Sustainer, Provider, and Redeemer.  He just happens to be by our side.
