Today’s devotion for today is based on Ephesians 4:32-3:2, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. 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.”
God wants us to imitate him. It is a tall order, to say the least. It is actually impossible for sinful humans like us to imitate God. Fortunately, Jesus did what we cannot do. He perfectly imitated God because Jesus is God. His perfect life is why we have been forgiven by God for our sins.
Every day we need to read about Jesus in the Bible. It leads us to be kind and compassionate, to forgive each other, and to live a life of love. Keep reading about Jesus and become a better and better imitator of God.
Please prays the prayer for today with me: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, thank you for coming to us in the form of Jesus. Help me to imitate his actions on this earth, so that I will grow closer to you in my heart and actions. In Jesus’ name, we pray
