IMITATORS OF GOD! – Ephesians 5:1-2 Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Ephesians 5:1-2 –  Devotional

Ephesians 5:1-2

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”

As a boy I often found myself watching my dad and trying to imitate everything that he did. I know he was trying his best to follow the Lord and as a result I soon discovered that I could follow the Lord on my own.

Yes, I still needed the influence of my dad in my life, but much more so I needed the perfect example of Jesus to be the prime influence in my life. I failed many times, but I always knew that even though I would fail, Jesus would never fail!

As we strive to become imitators of Christ we need to seek the source of Divine guidance. That is in the Bible. We can hear others preach from passages to be found in the Bible, but it is essential to go to the source in God’s Word.

Jesus consistently used passages from the Old Testament and made His listeners discover that God’s Word is the pattern we are to follow. To truly be imitators of Christ we must spend time with Him in His Word!

Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
