Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.”
Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT
"Imitate God"! What a motto! A motto is a statement or phrase that captures our beliefs and ideals. As believers in Jesus Christ, we are to act like the One we call Lord. Acting like Jesus means we must conscientiously conduct our affairs in a manner that will be consistent with His attributes and character. Loving others is the foremost characteristic. Can you imagine a world filled with people who act like Jesus? What a Utopia (place of perfection/paradise) that would be!!
Are you acting like Jesus in your conduct? I'm not asking if you call yourself a believer or even if you go to church. Do you act like Jesus? The world needs to see Christ in us. Religion itself is simply ritual and ceremony. A relationship with God produces His likeness!
