Cat and Dog Theology??


Life. It's not really about us, me, I, mine, my......... It's all about Jesus!!

I went for cell meeting just now and we started to learn about this "Cat and Dog Theology" and it really captured my mind and struck me hard. It gaved me a whole new paradigm shift on how it really reflects on our lives, even as Christians. Being the "cat", it's always about me and me alone, but on the "dog"'s perspective, it's always about God and Him alone!!

The first lesson started of with Genesis Chapter 1, and the speaker went on to read the whole passage of Chapter 1, from day 1 itself to the creation of heaven and earth. Most of us might be thinking why is he speaking all over again as if we don't know the passage. Some might even get bored and wonder why? Well, the answer to it could be because "we were not even there" at the creation of heaven and earth, so why bother?? Or.... why is it important to me?? People will only be interested from chapter 3 onwards coz only then it involves "ME".

Who is the main character of the Bible?? ME or God?? When we do our quiet time, is it because of what I can get out of God?? or because we wanto praise and honor God?? In "cat" theology, it's always about WDIG - What Do I Get?? But "dog" theology will be WDGG - What Does God Get?? Many of us might do quiet time for the sake of doing it, which i sometimes did but hey.... Some might do it because he/she is looking to get something out of it!! It's really time to change into a whole new perspective!! It's all about God!!! We wanto honor and praise and glorify HIM!!

John 3:16 - "For God so love the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Why did God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross?? Many of us will say, to die for our sins... to save us from eternal death... for US..... But Jesus died on the cross primarily is to honor God. To glorify His name. What does God get?? Praise, Honor, Worship, Glory!! It's all about Him!! Eternal life so that we can worship Him in Heaven!!

It was really awesome to learn this "cat and dog theology" as it makes me think differently and experience Jesus and my walk with Him in a whole new perspective =) All praise and honor to the Lord!
