“be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love; just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and a sacrifice to God.”
-ephesians 5:1-2

how do we become imitators of God?

if my identity comes from being a child of God, a dearly loved child, how then should i live my life?

i am constantly trying to figure out a way to live like Jesus, and mostly failing at it. in the midst of my selfish existence, i hope i can find a way to live a life of love. i’m guessing it will be something i’ll be trying to figure out for the rest of my life. so much of our world is about hate, anger, greed, lust, and violence. i just want to be about love.

  1. Visiting from 31DBBB as well! i really like your site, and i’m going to add you to my Feedly Reader!
    And thanks for the reminder that i must imitate God daily!

  2. I agree, I want it to be all about love. It really is so difficult to get wrapped up in anger, jealousy, resentment, annoyance, whatever! I guess a life filled with true love, as often as possible, is the road less travelled?
