Ephesians 5 : 1-2 shows us how to follow God's example in everything we do. God wants us to follow His will for our lives. Some of us may wonder how we can know what God wants us to do. In verse 2 we are told: "Live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved you and gave himself as a sacrifice to take away your sins. And God was pleased because that sacrifice was like a sweet perfume to Him". I need to ensure that I'm a sweet-smelling perfume to God.
Here we see that God wants us to be like Jesus Christ. As we look at His life, we can see how God would like us to think and act. We are to love our enemies just as Jesus did.
As difficult as imitating Christ might sound, anything is possible with God's powerful help and by His grace.
May God bless you as you strive to follow His example in everything you do.
