Imitate God, therefore in everything you do because you are his dear children. Let there be no sexual immorality, impurity or greed among you. Such sins have no place among God’s people. Obscene stories, foolish talk, and course jokes – these are not for you. Instead, let there be thankfulness to God. Ephesians 5:1, 3, 4 NLT
What is commonly known as faith in Jesus the Christ is the life of a new creation that his grace gives to our character. Imitate God, in everything you do because you are his dear children. If sexual immorality, impurity, greed, obscene stories, foolish talk and course jokes were so outstanding, we would have stayed in them and rejected the life of his grace. In Christ we can actually live in a new nature that has no remorse as it transforms our values, our thinking, our emotions and our attitudes towards God, family, friends and co-workers. Today celebrate the nature you have in his grace to live with the emotions of thanksgiving. Here, you and everyone around you will experience a goodness in relationships with the Lord and each other. As you live in his grace, no one around you will be irritated, including you. Kindness and integrity will just be who you are. Enjoy!
