The concept of imitation is at work all around us. From fashion and technology, to movies and TV shows, imitation is alive and well. Don’t think so? Think again. How many superhero movies do we really need? Or reality TV competitions? How often does a new sound come out only to have countless artists copy it? Imitation is everywhere. But it’s alive and well in us, too.
So much of who we are is influenced by other people. In a sense, we are who we imitate. This can be a negative thing. But by imitating the only One worthy of imitation, we can discover an incredibly powerful and positive life.
Through Paul’s words in Ephesians 5:1-2, Imitator challenges students to live the life of a God-imitator, helping them understand what this looks like in the world they live in.
