God Imitators


The character that we bear of God’s children obliges us to resemble Him, especially in His love and goodness, in His mercy and readiness to forgive.

As the sacrifice of Christ was satisfyingly effective with God, so His example should be prevailing with us, and we should carefully copy it.

There’s no room for evildoing! You don’t do evildoing, you say? Are you sure of that?

Let’s do a quick mental check:

  • Expressing a bad attitude
  • Hoping for someone else’s bad fortune
  • Plotting revenge

Need I go on?

Over the years I’ve noticed a trend in people expressing their minds about how they believe so and so deserves to get a taste of their own medicine. That kind of thinking is sinful. Yahweh isn’t particularly excited that we’re thinking, talking, nor acting on this attitude. It’s clear in His word!

Yes, on occasion I’ve fallen prey to that thinking. I’m not immune to sin. Shocker, I know! None of us is immune to sin. We’re born into it. Yahweh’s word tells us we are. Go see for yourselves. I encourage you to pour over and delve into His word. Learn what it says. Be imitators of HIM! Not imitators of the world.

Are you an imitator of Yahweh? If so, comment your experience. Let’s talk.

Love One Another

Day 11 – Love One Anotherlove-each-other image

Phileo – For the next week I’ll be talking about this.
The phileo love refers to an affectionate, warm and tender platonic love. It makes you desire friendship with someone. It’s the kind of love which livens up the Agape love. Although you may have an agape love for your enemies, you may not have a phileo love for the same people. The translation of the word phileo is love in the noun – form: it is how you feel about someone. It is a committed and chosen love.

God’s word tells us:

Leviticus 19:18 Forget about the wrong things people do to you, and do not try to get even. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. I am the Lord.
Matthew 22:37-39 Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and most important command. And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’

It’s about choice and commitment. What choice will you make?

When you’re not loving people it means you’re not like them. That is a choice too. It’s about the attitudes and choices we make.

Choose an attitude of gratitude and commit to loving people. The choice to love will give you more  happiness in life. Who doesn’t want to be happy? Also, choosing love will give you blessings from God.
