BE IMITATOR OF GOD!
Therefore be imitators of God as dear children (Ephesians 5:1).
God, the Creator of heaven and earth, the Omnipotent, the Omnipresent and the Omniscient wants you to imitate Him. The word, “Imitator” is derived from the Greek root word, “Imitate” which means to follow or to take after. As Christians, God wants us to follow or take after Him in totality. He wants us to copy, act and talk like Him in thought, character and behavior. This is why we are called Christians in Acts 11:26. Every Christian is supposed to be an imitator of God in thought, character and well-being.
In the opening text, God addressed us as imitators of Him. Apostle John emphasized on this when he said, “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17). You are neither inferior nor counterfeit but you are the express image of God. You were created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26). Therefore, a Christian has the flow of the divinity in his life which makes him unique and special.
Every Christian has the audacity, power and authority to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and become a source of blessing to humanity. The Lord has empowered you for extraordinary miracles and wonders to your generation. That is the reason why Jesus Christ said that he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father (John 14:12). A Christian’s imitation of the Father gives him the privilege to be a part and partaker of the power of the divinity.
Daily Tip: As a Christian, you are expected to be imitator of God and become a source of blessing to your generation. Shalom!
Golden Text: For to this you were called, because Christ also suffer for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps (1 Peter 2:21).
