Ephesians 5:1, "Be imitators of God, as dearly loved children
and live a life of love."
Jesus did not put on any airs, but came to save us through His death
and resurrection. Philippians 2:5 says:
"Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus."
It's not enough for us to act interested in others, but we must show real
love and concern for them. It's also not enough to act unselfishly,
we must be free from inner selfishness. Just as Christ died on
the cross for us, so we must die to ourselves and find a true and better
self in Jesus.
We are to be like Jesus, not just in the way we act and speak, but in our
innermost thoughts and values. As we have fellowship with God and
worship and seek to please Him, the Holy Spirit will develop in us the
same attitude and values that Christ has.
Remember the W.W.J.D armband? It teaches us to think, "What would
Jesus do?" before we speak or act. In the same way we need to
follow Jesus' example in our lives, words, thoughts and deeds.
