The Image of Christ

We’ve all heard and seen the stories of folks seeing an image of Christ in various objects.

There was the corn flake, the tortilla, and who knows what else. I understand a couple of those things sold on e-bay for quite a sum of money.

Last year a town in Connecticut was in the news for an elm tree which the locals proclaimed sported an image of Christ from a certain angle. Tourism went up in the town apparently as folks traveled from far and wide to see the image on the tree.

One of the most recent reports is a depiction of Jesus on a Wal-Mart receipt. In answer to the question, “What would Jesus do?” I somehow don’t think the answer is show up on a Wal-Mart receipt!

While these apparitions may be interesting, the Bible doesn’t teach us to look for the image of Christ in the material world around us. It does teach those of us who are Christians that WE are to bear the image of our Lord and Savior.

We are to do that by demonstrating the fruit of His Spirit listed on Galatians 5 – love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control
