To imitate God we have to know Him –His nature, His ways, His words and His acts. Jesus is our example of God the Father. He revealed God Him as a loving Father who cares for us and watches over us. When He returned to the Father, They sent the Holy Spirit to teach us how to live the more abundant life and walk as Jesus walked. In the beginning our steps are awkward, but as we read His Word, pray, and submit to the constant ministry of transformation by the Holy Spirit we will become more and more like Him.

Father, we have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so we will walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him, established in the faith and joyfully abounding in it. Love is our foundation, and we pray that Christ will be at home in us. May we be rooted and grounded in love, able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height — to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge, that we may be filled with all the fullness of God, and walk as Jesus walked in love, in harmony and unity with one another. Amen.
