Ephesians 5:2 - And walk in love, even as also Christ loved us and gave
Himself over for us, an offering and sacrifice to God as a sweet-smelling

Part 1 - The Manifestation of His Love Through Us

There is no greater definition and witness to the presence of God in our
lives than the manifestation of His love (John 13:34; 1 John 3:16). The
love we are to walk in can only be defined by how Jesus loved us, and we
are to love one another even as we have been loved by Him (1 John 4:11). In
knowing the love of Christ that passes knowledge, we are filled with all
the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19). As each individual in the Church
walks in the love of God, the Church increases and is built up to be the
full manifestation of the glorious Church Jesus purchased with His own
blood (Ephesians 1:23, 3:19, 4:15-16). As we dwell in love, we dwell in
God; and the glory of His presence is manifested to a world that is held in
darkness (John 15:4; 1 John 4:9, 16). Walking in the unity of His love
reveals to all men that Jesus is the Savior of the world, and we are His
disciples (John 13:35, 17:23; 1 John 4:16). If we imitate God and walk in
His love as Jesus did, then our lives will be a sweet-smelling offering
unto the Lord (Romans 12:1; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Ephesians 5:2).

Walk in love!
