Imitating Christ

30
Jun

Therefore, be imitators of God as dear children. Ephesians 5:1

Children begin imitating their parents and those around them from a very young age. As they grow into their teen years their world view grows broader, they start imitating a cool friend, a celebrity, or any person to whom they are drawn.

Even though we may not realize it, we always imitate those who are near and dear to us. We see some characteristic or trait which we loved in a person and we cannot stop imitating.

But the caveat is that we need to be careful whom we imitate. Paul challenges us to be imitators of God.

How can we humans imitate the Lord Jesus Christ?

Can we be creators?

Can we give life?

Can we heal?

Yes !! we can in our own way.

We can stretch out our hands, ears, and hearts to those wounded, broken, unloved, and defeated people around us.

While we imitate the Lord Jesus in this manner, we will Create Hope, Joy, and Peace in the lives of people. We may be giving some people a new lease of Life or second chance in their lives. We will Heal broken hearts.

We will truly be Christ-like.
