The bible says we are to be imitators of God. We are to walk in love, as Christ has loved us. He loved us by dying on the cross. We are supposed to love Him enough to take up our cross and die to the old ways we lived; to stop mimicking the world, and start loving the right way. We are to make sacrifices of our lives through service to Him. What does that service look like; using kind words to edify and encourage others, helping someone in need, or telling others about what God has done for us and them. There are many ways to imitate Christ. When we imitate Him the right way our service becomes a sweet aroma to Him. Then God is pleased. Lord help me to be an imitator of Your love and become a sweet smelling aroma to You.
"Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in Love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma." ~Ephesians 5:1The Drawing:
