Walk in love

Ephesians 5:1-2
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; [2] And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

We need to be followers of God. Remember when you were a child and played follow the leader. Someone would lead and all the “followers” would do the exact same thing. It would be very easy to follow God if He was here in the flesh, but that is where faith comes in. We need to follow Him in faith. The only way to follow in faith is to open up God’s word and read and study it for ourselves. God’s word is not hidden to those who diligently look.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6

One of the ways to follow is by walking in love. Adam Clarke says to walk in love is to “Let every act of life be dictated by love to God and man.” The only way to do this is by taking one step at a time. Every walk starts with a step. What is the next step in your love walk?

Throughout the month I have talked about love, God’s love to us, our love to God and our love to others. Take a few minutes today to mediate on a “love” verse. Which verse “jumped out” at you this month, leave a comment to let me know.

Have a lovely day
