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
A Life Filled with Love
A life filled with love for others is a pleasing aroma to God. If God is a God of love, and we were made in His image, then we have the capability to love others. We can be godly and show others how to live godly. This is what discipling others is all about. When we become a Christian we are giving our lives over to the Lord to be a blessing to others. Is your life a blessing to others? A pleasing aroma to God? Are you living in such a way that brings joy to His heart? If we bear the name of Christ, then we are to live as though we are His children. This means choosing light over darkness, right over wrong, and good over evil.
If we keep our eyes on Him and follow Him, we will find that others will want to follow the God we serve. They will wonder why our lives are different and what it is about us that radiates from the inside out. His light will shine in us. Do you want others to know the God you know? Do you want them to have a relationship with Him too? Then live in such a way that points others to Him instead of repelling them away from Him and you will see their lives changed, too.
A Prayer to Remember
I want to live the type of life that points others to you and leads them to your throne. I want to be a vessel for you. May I live in such a way that is pleasing to you, Oh Lord. Amen
