Ephesians 5:1 Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children.

The scripture tells us to imitate God. To do that, we have look through the scriptures to know the heart of God and the actions of God.

The heart of God is love (1 John 4:8). God is love. All He knows is love. As imitators of God, we are called to love. We don’t only love when we feel like it or when someone loves us back. We make the decision to love because we’re imitators of our Father.

God calls those things that be not as though they were (Rom. 4:17). Since God believes that His words have the power to change situations as it pleases Him (in Genesis) and we have power in our words, according to Proverbs 18:21, we can change our world with our words.

God forgives (1 John 2:12). God has forgiven everything we’ve done wrong because of Jesus’ sacrifice. We too can forgive our brother or sister who has wronged us. We’re not above God where we can’t forgive. If He can forgive, we can too.

These are just a few ways we can and should be imitating God. Look through the scriptures to see others ways we can imitate God.
