Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us...

Eph. 5:1-2a

Walk in Love

In the last ‘GraceVine’ I challenged my readers to find scripture passages telling us what we should be pursuing or “following” in our lives. Eph. 5:1-2a says, “Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us…” What a great start to our list! Paul tells us to be a follower of God, which is a very general statement, but then he gets very specific in the next two phrases “as dear children, walk in love.” As children often imitate their parents, we should strive to imitate our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ regarding our love for others. Their love was, and is, an un-selfish, self-sacrificing, unconditional kind of love to a very undeserving people. Our love should be like that. To whom will you choose to make an effort to show that kind of love today? Be a follower of God in the area of love.
