“Be imitators of God, and walk in love.” Ephesians 5:1-2

There are many scriptures written about LOVE. Ephesians 5:12 speaks to the heart of those who learn to walk in LOVE and imitate the One who created us to LOVE one another.

God loved us enough to sacrifice His only Son. He demonstrated LOVE when Jesus left the comfort of heaven to become a man. Christ suffered tremendous pain. He didn’t deserve to hang on a cross, or die a horrible death. God sent Him to take the sins of the world and provide eternal life for those who believe and trust.

Jesus taught how to faithfully LOVE. He set an example of how we are to live our lives with a heart of compassion and awareness of the needs of those around us. He shared LOVE with those not loved by others and mended wounded hearts. He continues to cradle us in care and renew our hearts for Him. And, He helps us learn how to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

How can we be imitators of God? We must first recognize He loves us, because God is LOVE! We have been given a heart to glorify Him and show His LOVE to others. God’s lasting LOVE is meant to be shared. He will show us how to embrace it and simply pass it on.

Dear God, Thank you for arming with everything we need to SHARE the offering of Your love. Open our hearts to recognize the needs of others. Humble us to remember EVERYONE is deserving of Your amazing grace. And help us LOVE as Christ loves us. We will open our hearts to receive what You provide and find joy in the blessing of a grateful heart. Amen
