Devotional: Walking In God's Ways

Christian Women's Devotion about Becoming Like Christ


Read: Ephesians 5:1-21 (NKJV)

"...Therefore be imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their fathers]...(V:1 AMPC)".

I guess this verse sums it up. We need to be imitators of God. Our hearts desire should be set on becoming Christ-like in every area of our lives. God isn't interested in just a little bit of us. He doesn't want to be put in a box labelled 'Religion' and left on the side, only to be opened up now and then when we need Him. He wants to be involved in every area of our lives. Even the little things about our lives He is interested in.

Our mindset should change to wanting our lives to be in line with God's ways. I know we can't change overnight. Some things drop away more easily than other things. And often when we breakthrough in one area, we discover something else to put right. I often liken this to an onion. You peel back one layer only to find another layer underneath. God puts His finger on different areas where we need to change, but thankfully we don't have to do this on our own. God works in us, and with us, to bring about that change.

But despite all of this, we need to have a desire to walk in God's ways—rather than the world's ways. A lot of these things mentioned in verses 3-5 seem to be commonplace in today's society. No one seems to be concerned, and it's almost like if you don't live this way, you're out-of-date, old-fashioned. But God doesn't think so. His ways do not change to fit with the times in which we live—neither should ours. Our lives need to reflect our faith.

V:15(AMPC) says, "Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people)." We really need to examine our walk! When we live our lives in the light of God's word—we can't go wrong.

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. - Isaiah 55:8-9 (AMPC)

Lord, I ask that you would help me
Walk faithfully in your ways
To strip away the deeds of darkness
And walk in the light of grace.
