As children mature, they often bear an increasing resemblance to their parents. Alistair Begg explains that the Christian life is similar: as believers mature in faith, we should look more and more like our Heavenly Father as we seek to imitate Him. Our Christian lives should be marked by genuine love for others that follows the self-giving pattern of the cross.
1Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
