Day 19

Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore, do not become partners with them. -Ephesians 5:1-7

God of love, I praise You today, for You are a God of mercy and kindness, giving and gracious. You willingly gave Your Son as a sacrifice for the world. Thank You, Jesus, for offering Yourself as a fragrant sacrifice to Your Father. Thank You for taking my sin away, making me righteous before a Holy God. I will never cease to give You praise for Your pure and loving sacrifice for me.

Additional Prayer Questions & Points to Pray Through

  • Am I a beloved child of God who seeks to imitate His Father?
    Lord, help me imitate You. Give me eyes to see Your heart and a will to obey and be more like Jesus.
  • What is impure in my life? Is their covetousness, filth, idolatry, immoral or impure thoughts or actions?
    Jesus, give me wisdom to know when I am not being a true imitator of You. Show me the sin that caused You to hang on a tree for me and teach me how to withstand the temptation to turn from You and Your ways when I am weak.
