…imitation…

Be imitators, of God

Therefore,

As dearly loved children

And live a life of love,Just as Christ

Loved us and gave

Himself for us

As a fragrant offering

And sacrifice

To God.

Ephesians 5:1-2

Be like God.

For that reason,

As you are His chosen beloved

Live love daily

Resembling Christ who gave all

To us

As a beautiful gift of submission

And surrendered all as worship

To God.

Do you ever read a verse that jumps off the page and slaps you in the face? Reading this verse this week reminded me about what I want to be all about. I want to be about reflecting God to others, living love daily, and giving all as worship to God. Imitating God is not about being a fake replica or a generic version of His love. Instead it’s being God’s children and reflecting Christ’s love and giving ourselves to others. I hope to be a genuine imitation of God.

Who are you imitating?
