IMITATORS OF GOD

God has called us to be His imitators. No, we’re not God, nor do we have the holiness of God, but surely we can live out the virtues of God by being loving, kind, and humble. Often, we lack these virtues, so people really don’t see us in the light of God. Our lives should indicate that we have been with Him and He has been with us. In Ephesians 5:1,we find these words:

“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are His dear children.”

God has given us the blueprint we should follow. I remember some time ago a popular saying that raised this moving question, “ What would Jesus do?”  Whenever we are confronted with a situation that requires discipline, love, or sacrifice, our response should  simply be doing what Jesus did — be an imitator of God. It is my prayer today that as God’s beloved children we are truly imitating Him in all of our ways.
