Be Imitators of Christ

Ephesians 5:1-2 ” Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children and walk in love, just a Christ loves you, and gave Himself up for you as an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma. “

Why is it that so many believe they can not be like Christ? Aftercall, each of us are made in His image. We have born within us this and these attributes. What is needed is to first trust in this truth and then to improve our knowing of this truth. It is reality to come into a personal relationship w/ Christ and learn to imitate Jesus. In every area of our lives, even when it causes uncomfortability. And so can you do this? Be an imitator of Christ. Love is His key attribute, forgiveness and a welcoming spirit. Can you do this. May the love of God and the fellowship of man be ever with you. So walk in love, in the grocery store, when you are pumping gas, at the school board meeting. Christ is opening up opportunities for you to ” Love Thy Neighbor. ” Be prepared to serve, be on the alert and be ready. You can do this, the ability for you to serve in Love is in you.

Mid-Week Prayer, ” Many times you have opened doors, showed me the way and I have ignored you, feared the unknown and have not done what you have asked. Forgive my dis-obedient nature. Lord teach me and show me how I may be of better service to Thee and those around me. Amen.
