Ephesians 5:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Living in God’s Love

Be imitators of God in everything you do,[a] for then you will represent your Father as his beloved sons and daughters. And continue to walk surrendered to the extravagant love of Christ, for he surrendered his life as a sacrifice for us. His great love for us was pleasing to God, like an aroma of adoration—a sweet healing fragrance.[b]


  1. Ephesians 5:1 The Greek word mimetes frequently depicts an actor playing a role. God wants us to mimic him and be filled with his thoughts, his love, his deeds, and his character.
  2. Ephesians 5:2 The Aramaic word “fragrance” can also be translated “healing balm.”
