Ephesians 5:1 ” Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children…”

It tells us in John 1:12-13, “Yet to all who receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God – children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”  When we are born again into the family of God we become His children.  And just like little children we learn by our Heavenly Father’s example.  We’ve all seen tiny toddlers attempting to mimic adult actions…it’s how children learn to do things…they model and copy their parents.  We are to be imitators of God…modeling our lives after Him, and living as His beloved children.
