“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 sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1-2
Instead of the million other things I try to do and to be, this is what I’m going for this week (and hopefully many more weeks). Forget the rest. I want to live as a dearly love child of God who tries her best to love like Jesus and live like her Father wants her to. Simple, incredibly difficult, and humbling words are all wrapped in one little sentence, and the directive is so clear. Help me Lord, to be more like you want me to be, to love people like you do, and to live as your child.
