“Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.” (3 John verse 11)
The apostle John always made it a point in his writings to emphasize a few things. To love one another, to test the message to make sure it’s true, the assurance of forgiveness with repentance and that the relationship with the Father will spur on good actions from those who follow Jesus.
We are to imitate what is good. If we are followers of Jesus, we are to imitate Him. We are to serve one another. We are to love one another. We do this not because we have to or because we’re trying to earn our salvation. We do it because of the overflow of abundance of grace and mercy shown to us by God.
Let us this week reflect the love that has been shown to us by God to others. Let us imitate what is good, because we follow the one who truly is good, Jesus.
