Be Imitators Of God
"Do not let unwholesome talk come out of
your mouths, but only what is helpful for
building others up according to their needs,
that it may benefit those who listen.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
with whom you were sealed for the day of
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger,
brawling and slander, along with every form
Be kind and compassionate to one another,
forgiving each other, just as in Christ God
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 4:29- 5:2
We must be imitators of God as children of light. God became man in Jesus Christ to show us the way to righteousness and truth. The sign that we are really the children of God is, if we have love in our hearts. We must not only love God but also our neighbors as ourselves. We can do this if we are always in filled with the Holy Spirit. We must avoid all kinds of negative emotions and feelings as well as useless arguments. They only lead to pride and self righteousness. The way to heaven is the way of the cross, if we can truly humble ourselves and follow the way of the Lord.
