Kingdom Workers Imitate God

  • Kingdom Workers Imitate God - Cindy

    I have the privilege to be the mother of three hilarious, adorable little girls. Braelyn is my 4 year old daughter. She is my little middle, and is famous around our house for a few different things including always having a book in her hands, making silly faces, and she has a dang good British accent.  When Braelyn grows up, she’d like to be a chef and maybe  have her own restaurant.  Braelyn asks me if she can help make dinner. Every. Single. Night. To her, helping doesn’t mean watching, it means doing. She longs to wash, chop, add, and stir until dinner is made. I definitely don’t need her help. In fact, my kitchen would be cleaner if she didn’t help.  But I love her help. I love teaching her and spending time with her. Honestly, I even love her messes -- it means she’s trying. The more she cooks with me, the more she cooks like me.

     

    I think that’s what it means to IMITATE God. To do life WITH him. He allows us to have a part in his plan, not because he needs us, but because he enjoys spending time with us and equipping us to grow more like him.  He’ll forgive me when I mess up, in fact he can fix things when I do, just like I help my daughter.  I’m not going to be perfect and I have already made quite a few messes. When I imitate God, I’m learning FROM Him how to be like him.

     

    Eph. 2:10 says: For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


    What things does God want you to help him with? Find them. Ask an adult what they think they  are. He’s waiting for you to make a mess in His kitchen! Don’t be afraid of your flaws and mistakes. You were created for this. Imitate God and learn to be like him!
