Read Ephesians 5:1-20
Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. Ephesians 5:1-2a (NLT)
As we put off the old nature and put on God’s new nature, it is important that we avoid embracing ‘religion’, a set of rules, and instead imitate Christ and His love. We can do this by continually examining our motives rather than our results, so that we learn to agree with God that His way is best.
