Imitator's of Christ
Last week, we discussed abiding in Christ and determined that it is remaining in Him and Him in us. So, how exactly do we do that? Ephesians 5:1-2 gives us one way, "Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and has given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma."
Be imitators of God. To do this, we must know Him intimately. We need to be students of who God is and then apply his character to our daily actions.
Walk in love as Christ did. This is a call to selflessness. This is a call to living intentionally. We need to live for God and others (and not for our selfish desires) so that we can be a sweet-smelling aroma to God. Would God describe the offering of our life as "sweet-smelling" to Him or would it be the opposite? Does the aroma of our life draw people to God or make them run the other direction?

Available and intentional with with your time, money and emotions so that you can be a light to those around you near and far.
