To “imitate” is to copy. In other words, to make a fairly exact imitation of an original.
To imitate God is to copy him. What is God like?
God is love; so we love
God is faithful; so we are faithful
God is merciful; so we are merciful
God loves justice; so we love justice
Study the Bible to know about God and imitate him. We have the power and innate ability to be like him because through Christ, we have been made his children.
It’s daddy’s delight to see his kids imitate him.
