Meditation 3/10/08

Today's verse to think upon:

"Be imitators of God, therefore, asa dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." - Ephesians 5:1-2

As children of God who are trying to show Jesus to the world, we need to live as Jesus did while He was on this earth. When we are with those who others consider unlovable, undesirable and even those who might be considered loveable and desirable but do not know God, we are to treat them with the love God has for us and how Jesus would have treated them while He was on the earth. The world calls for us to treat them one way and to do things that would be outside God's will and commandments. Hard as it may be, we should look at others - all others - through the eyes of God and love them how God would love them. This is how we can live a life of love His to all of those around us. It will not be easy, but may God bless us as we strive to imitate Him and Son.
