Sermos Imitadores de Cristo
And God saidLet us make man in our image after our likenessand let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the bird of the heavens and over the tame-beastand over all the land, and over every creeping thing, that creepeth on the land.
Become ye, therefore, imitators of God, as children beloved,
5 The same thing, esteem, in yourselves, which also, in Christ Jesus, ,
6 Who, in form of God, subsisting, not, a thing to be seized, accounted the being equal with God,
7 But, himself, emptied, taking, a servants form, coming to be, in mens likeness;
8 And, in fashion, being found, as a man, humbled himself, becoming obedient as far as death, yea, death upon a cross.
And, ye, became, imitators of us, and of the Lord, giving welcome unto the word, in much tribulation, with joy of Holy Spirit;
Become imitators of me,even as, I also, of Christ.
God is, spirit; and, they that worship him, in spirit and truth, must needs worship.
