Families/Individuals with no young children, please follow this devotional by Rev. Ronald Ray:
Ephesians 5:1-21 (please read this first)
Follow God’s example. This admonition/encouragement/suggestion/good idea/command (perhaps all words apply) contained at the beginning of the text for today caught my attention as I began to read. This must be something that I take seriously. Reading the truths about God’s character gives me an idea of what it means to be a follower.
Looking at the life and ministry of Jesus we see the example that He set for us:
That gives you a starting place for what it means to be a follower. When you become more and more a follower you will be able to say as Paul said in 1 Corinthians 11:1. “ Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.” If you are a follower of Jesus, you can say it with humility, boldness, and compassion.
In ways are you following Jesus? I what areas do you need improvements?
