A Message From The Pastor

JULY THEME: I Am Loved
 
The Apostle Paul urges us in Ephesians 5:1, “Be imitators of God, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God”.

An imitator is someone who tries to act like another, so as children of God, we are called to imitators of God; we are to make Him our example and model. Our Lord Jesus’ relationship with us becomes our measure for our relationship with others. As imitators of God, we become representatives of God, especially to those who are not following Him. "What are we sent into the world for? Is it not that we may keep men in mind of God, whom they are most anxious to forget? If we are imitators of God, as dear children, they will be compelled to recollect that there is a God, for they will see His character reflected in ours. I have heard of an atheist who said he could get over every argument except the example of his godly mother: he could never answer that." (Charles Spurgeon)

As in all things, Jesus is our example. He loves us and gave Himself selflessly and sacrificially on the cross for us, and so we are to display the same kind of self-giving love for others. To imitate Christ means we love others by thinking well and speaking well of them, of praying for them, doing good and serving them. To love like Christ means accepting that person, looking out for that person’s welfare, putting that person’s interests before our own interests.

This may sound impossible on a human level. But remember, it is God who plants in our hearts the desire to love others. God never requires us to do anything He hasn’t already enabled us to do. The Holy Spirit who takes up residence within us at the moment of salvation will enable us to love like Jesus, as we allow Him to govern our thoughts and actions. Then the world will see Christ Jesus in our love for others. Be imitators of God, dearly loved children and let us closely resemble our Heavenly Father each and every day.

Blessings,

Rev. Sabrina Foerster
