When you imitate God, when you do things His way, you get His results!
BIBLE STUDY | Ephesians 5:1 NLT | “Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children.”
Naturally, when people look at you, they see your family resemblance. Normally, you have characteristics of your father or mother; maybe you have their eyes, or mouth or mannerisms.
Now, what today’s bible verse is telling us is that we should also have the characteristics of our Heavenly Father! We should display His likeness. We should have His eyes, His mouth and His mannerisms, too.
We should study Him and imitate Him with the same awe that little children do as they imitate their earthly fathers.
For instance, God is love. When we are walking in love, we’re re imitating God. When we are being patient and kind, when we are extending grace and mercy and forgiving others the way Christ has forgiven us, we’re imitating God.
And when you imitate God, when you do things His way, you get His results!
That is so powerful that I’ll repeat it.
WHEN YOU IMITATE GOD, WHEN YOU DO THINGS HIS WAY, YOU GET HIS RESULTS!
God’s ways always lead to life, freedom and blessing. The more you imitate your heavenly Father by walking in love, the more you will see Him moving in your life. He’ll open doors for you that no man can close, and you’ll see His hand of blessing in every area of your life!
