Be Imitators of God

Eph 5:1-2 says "Therefore be imitators of God as dear children and walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, and offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma". Another word for imitator is a follower. Paul describes how we are to follow or imitate God. It's by walking in love. What kind of love should we be walking in. The kind of love Jesus demonstrated while he followed God. He gave himself for us. Jesus would say it this way in another verse "greater love has no one than this, than he lay down his life for his friend." A follower of Christ lays down his or her life for friends. The rest of the chapter goes on to say what I believe are some actions of walking in love or laying down our lives for others. I would like to speak on these things over the next few days. But before than imitate God today. Imitate Him every where you go. Remember it costs you something to follow God. It costs our lives!!! Loose your life today and find the life that is filled with Gods love!!!!
