Living in the Light - Thursday, February 15th 2018
1 Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.
As we follow the Lord and as we live a life filled with the love of God, we imitate God.
- We follow Him to live.
- We follow God to His Word.
- We read in the Bible about Him.
We learn about God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in the Bible. When we are reading and studying the Bible, and we see something that doesn't seem to quite fit, look a little closer. Dig into that! The Bible itself encourages us to dig around, to study to show ourselves approved.
When you follow God, you have to follow Him to His Word, and begin to apply the Word, allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you. When you say you are following God, you don't say when and where you follow God. We follow God in all areas! We follow God in our speech. It's important we learn to speak as God does in the Bible.
God bless you!
Life Lesson: When reading the Bible notice all the details.
Thank You for your Word! Thank You that You reveal how to follow You, to do what You do, to be loving, kind, giving, generous, and thankful. Please use us to be Your hands and feet as we follow You. In Jesus name, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
