Scripture of the Day - March 4, 2012

Ephesians 5:1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

My son is the spit and image of his father. I don't use that term lightly. He has the same laugh, the same smile, the same walk, the same mannerisms, the same physique, everything is soooo much the same, it's almost eerie. It's not hard to tell he is his father's son. 

The same should be said for Christians. We should be so much like our Father in heaven that people know right away who we are. We should follow after God so closely that we can't help but act like Him.

How do we do that? Walk in love! Show the same sacrificial love for others that Christ showed. We are not expected to die for others, that would be pointless...Jesus already did that once and for all...but we are to have that selfless brotherly love, that agape love, for others.

That would be pleasing to God and it would show what family we belong to.
