Be A Xerox Copy of God


“Be imitators of God … as dearly loved children and live a life of love …” (Eph. 5:1-2). God’s invitation to imitate Him is an unscalable challenge to every one of us. Who can imitate God? We failed the test of keeping the Ten Commandments, and God graciously set them aside and introduced salvation by GRACE through FAITH. No one has ever seen God. What does He look like? How, then, can we imitate Him? God sometimes asks us to do humanly impossible things, and only by His help can we accomplish them. It is impossible to imitate God without His help. We are called to imitate His character, and our first port of call is to live a life of love – love for God and love for our neighbors. If we sincerely love God and our neighbors as God commands us, we are indeed His children imitating our heavenly Father, for He loves everyone without showing favoritism. Aim to be a carbon or xerox copy of God today, all by His special grace.
