The Life of Elizabeth Day 7 – Sunday Selah
We’ve looked this week at many of the admirable qualities found in Elizabeth. But what we’ve discovered is that these qualities are really the outward manifestations of Jesus within her. When others examine us as believers, they should easily find traces of Jesus in us as well. How much they see of Him will depend on our obedience to His Word, and then aptly applying it in our lives.
As we move into a fresh week, let’s pray for a willingness to spend time with Him, not just today as we gather to worship Him but throughout the week. May we be diligent in our reading of His Word, our communicating with Him, and then applying what we learn in our own lives. It would, of course, be a compliment to be told we are a lot like an Elizabeth, but the goal isn’t really to emulate others nearly as much as it is to emulate Christ. May we aim high and be found faithfully striving to reflect His light and love to those in the world around us. It’s a refreshing and attractive response!
Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. (1 John 2:6, ESV)
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. (Ephesians 5:1-2, ESV)
