Ephesians 5:2

“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.”  Ephesians 5:2

This is from the Apostle Paul's letter to the people living in Ephesus.  Two verses at the part of Chapter 5 underline overall argument that imitating Christ is their new rule for life, and that imitation will include an imitation of Christ's love which really says a love that suffers for the beloved.  The verse stresses that Christs sacrifice on the cross was ONE that was freely given to redeem humanity from sin, and for no other reason than Love.  

We are to really be like Christ in our OWN credibility as Christians, we must Glorify God because He loves us and we are His Children, and we as Children SHOULD listen to our Father.  He LOVED us enough that His son Christ died for us.  Now since He LOVED us that much shouldn't we HONOR HIM and OBEY Him and His word and LOVE one another as well?

If we HATE we are NOT HONORING Him!

Thank you my sweet friend for the blessing and all your help!
