Good Saturday Afternoon. Want to peek over my shoulder? Yes? Good.
November 3, 2019, Sunday School Notes
5 Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father]; source
Verse 1, first two words: Therefore Become.
Why is the therefore there for?
Because of what has gone on before. Right?
What was chapter 4?
The Christian’s Walk.
This chapter (5) could be entitled Be Imitators of GOD.
Obviously, because that’s how the Christian is to walk. Right? Imitating GOD.
Now word two.
This word gives us hope!
Become is a process. GOD did not expect us to wake up the morning after our salvation and be exactly like JESUS in thoughts, words, and deeds. He really didn’t (or doesn’t for that one saved today). But obviously, from Chapter 5 we can be assured He does expect us to BECOME.
It’s a process.
Now isn’t that good news on this Saturday afternoon?!
Yes, I’m studying for Sunday School. 🙂
