Verse of the Day (September 17, 2020)

Verse of the Day (September 17, 2020) #BMSeminary {therefore} Verses 1-2 summarize 4:25-32 with a concluding exhortation to imitate God. {walk in the way of love} One specific example of imitating God. {just as} Christ’s sacrificial love for us (Gal 2:20) as demonstrated on the cross is the reason and pattern by which we are to love others (Eph 5:25; John 13:34). {fragrant} Indicating an offering pleasing to God (Gen 8:21; Exod 29:18,25,41; Lev 1:9,13,17; 17:6; Num 28:13). Its use here shows that Christ’s sacrificial offering for our sins was truly acceptable to God (Heb 7:27). [Zondervan Study Bible]
