Adam’s Devotional – July 18-24, 2019

From Adam…

(Excerpts from Ephesians 5:1-2)
“Follow God’s example”.Really? “As dearly loved children.” We are all children? We are all dearly loved? “And walk in the way of love.” What in the world does that mean? “Just as Christ loved us”. So we are supposed to love like Christ loves? We are supposed to follow God’s example? God? The creator of all that is seen and unseen. God, ultimate reality, more than can be known, source of all life, source of all that is? The great I am? We are supposed to follow that God’s example? How in the world are we supposed to do that? Could that be part of the reason why God put on human flesh in the person of Jesus Christ? So that we had an example to follow. What would loving your family like Christ loves look like today? Would it look like forgiveness? What would loving your friends like Christ loves us look like today? Would it look like celebration instead of comparison? What would loving the stranger like Christ loves look like today? Would it look like giving the benefit of the doubt? Would it look like assuming those who are different than you having something to teach you? God only knows. God’s up to something … be a part of it.
