Walk in Love
Ephesians 5:2

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.” Ephesians 5:2 NASB

The believer is to imitate God by walking in love. The believer’s daily walk, his lifestyle, is to be marked by the same love that Jesus Christ has for us. The ultimate demonstration of this self-giving agape love was when Christ gave Himself on the cross as a sacrifice to pay for our sins, a sacrificial offering that was acceptable and pleasing to God like a fragrant aroma. Christ is the primary example of how every believer is to give of himself, loving God with his whole being and loving others as himself.

Lord God, with Jesus as my example, help me to live a life that is pleasing to You by daily walking in Your love and demonstrating Your grace to others.
