We are called by God to be imitators of Him and Christ. This means we are to mimic, copy, and follow His mannerisms. We can’t do this unless we know and are around someone a lot.
We must observe to imitate. When we imitate or become imitators of God, it allows us to learn new things quickly and efficiently by watching, observing, learning God’s ways. As children, most of us learned by watching our parents, siblings, and others we looked up to. So, God gives us behaviors that we can strive to be like. He gives us a target behavior and then gives us the ability to work towards imitating Him and His ways.
Work in progress:
God knows we are all a work in progress and that we have good moments and some not-so-good moments in our lives. He forgives the not-so-good moments and rewards the good moments of our lives. But He does know we are all just a work in progress. So, let’s keep seeking Him, purposing to get to know Him and His words and truly become imitators of Christ.
Because we have received Him and believe in His name, He gave us the power to become His children (John 1:12).
Just a thought,
