A Child by Raymond A. Foss

Ever a child
obedient to the father
so was Christ in life
so we are called to be
to imitate Christ
to follow his example
to love and serve our neighbor
humbly in his name

Ephesians 5:1 (posted on Ruth’s office door)
various translations of Ephesians 5:1-2
“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.” (King James Version)
“Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn't love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.” (The Message)
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (New Revised Standard Version)
“Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” (NIV)
“Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children. And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, (A) a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.” (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
