Sermos Imitadores de Cristo
God said, “Let’s make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the sky, and over the livestock, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
Be therefore imitators of God, as beloved children.
5 Have this in your mind, which was also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, existing in the form of God, didn’t consider equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the likeness of men.
8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to the point of death, yes, the death of the cross.
You became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit,
Be imitators of me, even as I also am of Christ.
God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
