Imitate Christ in showing AGAPE

Jun 23, 2024    Pastor Steven Pettis Jr

In Ephesians 5:2, Paul calls believers to "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" (NASB1995). This verse is a profound reminder of the depth and nature of Jesus' love—a sacrificial, selfless, and pleasing love to God. The central theme here is that our love for others should mirror Christ's sacrificial love. Just as Jesus gave Himself up for us, we are called to live in service and love for one another. This sacrificial love is not merely about grand gestures but daily acts of kindness, forgiveness, and selflessness reflecting Christ's heart. Join Pastor Steve as he teaches us how to embody this Christ-like love in our lives, becoming a living example of His sacrificial love to the world around us.
