“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 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.”Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT
We are called to imitate God in all that we do. Our lives are called to be living sacrifices unto Him. Our lives are not our own, we are saved by the grace of God. We are called to reveal His glory.
We are Jesus representatives here upon the earth. This world is not our home. Our home is in heaven. We are called to walk in the Spirit and not glorify the lust of the flesh. The fruit of the Holy Spirit should fill our lives. If it does not we need to reexamine our relationship with Jesus. If He does not have first place in our lives then we are simply deceived and living in bondage.
