Imitation

TODAY’S VERSE
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 5:1-2

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The story goes that a young boy was brought before Alexander the Great for stealing a horse. Alexander saw how young he was and heard his story and decided he would be lenient. Getting ready to release him, Alexander asked the young boy, “What is your name?” He replied, “Alexander, sir.” Alexander the Great was furious and asked him again, “What is your name?” The boy, this time with fear in his voice said, “Alexander, sir.” In anger, Alexander the Great threw the boy to the ground, pointed at him and said, “Boy, change your conduct, or change your name.” I wonder, are we a good representative of the name of Christ, or would the cause of Christ be better served if we did not call ourself a Christian? Being His child is a privilege and an honor. In order not to bring any reproach to His name, our goal should be to live a life of love just like He did. How can you be a good representative of His name today?

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, I know that I bear Your name and haven’t imitated You the way that I should. I haven’t been the best representative of who You are. Help me live out Your love in everything I do today, so Your name will get the glory and honor it deserves. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
