Ephesians 5:1-2 (NLT) – Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.
Everyone who will walk with God and work for God will be required to offer something dear to their heart as a sacrifice to God at some point in their life. This ultimate sacrifice is requested by God Himself to test our commitment and love for Him. And because He gave us His only begotten Son for us, we must be willing to give up whatever He requires from us as a pleasing sacrifice acceptable by Him because what ever we loose we gain back a hundred fold on earth and in heaven. God rewards those who are able to make this sacrifice with His inseparable reckless and overwhelming love. God’s Love is our shield of honor that will lead us triumphantly in Christ Jesus allowing us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume.
Father may my life always give out a sweet fragrant perfume that will make everyone to adore your Holy name in Jesus name.
