“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.” Ephesians 5:1-2
Imitating God simply means giving the best, because of Love. God the Father, gave His best, His all, His utmost in Jesus for us only because He loves us. One of the toughest action to embrace and portray is Love.
It’s easy to shut someone off when they comply nowhere near to our standards, desires and emotions. But, it takes a real person in Jesus to extend the Love of Jesus to those who doesn’t deserve it one bit. Why? Because we too don’t deserve God’s love, yet He gives! Love changes, transforms, never fails and hopes without selfish motives.
This verse spoke to me immensely that when I Love with the Love that God loves me, I spread the fragrance of Heaven. The dirts of this world has to leave when a child of God walks in love, because Heaven backs us up. Lowering yourself to love, is the highest pedestrian you step into. Jesus breathers His Life, Strength and Courage when you take one step to relentless love.
