A certain medieval monk announced he would be preaching next Sunday evening on "The Love of God." As the shadows fell and the light ceased to come in through the cathedral windows, the congregation gathered. In the darkness of the altar, the monk lighted a candle and carried it to the crucifix. First of all, he illumined the crown of thorns, next, the two wounded hands, then the marks of the spear wound. In the hush that fell, he blew out the candle and left the chancel. There was nothing else to say.
As we think about what Chrsit did for us let us be followers of Him just as our verses say today.
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
- Ephesians 5:1-2 (King James Version)
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, We pray that we would be followers of You. Helps us to rememeber all you did for us and be as children and follow you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
