The walk

The walk of a Christian is a walk of obedience to God. Reason? Empowered with the Holy Spirit. Reason? The Grace of God keeps the Holy Spirit present in your life.

In times past you didn't walk with God. Reason? You didn't have Christ or personal redemption from sin. Ephesians 2:2

After Christ came in you could walk worthy in the eyes of God. Reason? You were called by God and you accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. Ephesians 4:1

The old life has nothing to offer. It is empty, void, and hollow. That old life of vanity can be tossed into the sea of forgetfulness when Christ takes over. Ephesians 4:17

After the Spirit of Christ came in actions were changed. Conduct was changed. A new behavior began. Eyes on Christ as personal Savior and redeemer. The character within the soul found peace. Love for mankind and fellow man is produced within. Christians imitate God in love because they are "begotten" of God. Love and unity are produced by the Grace of God that keeps the Holy Spirit present. Love and unity are characteristics of the Christian walk and Christian manner of life. Ephesians 5:1,2

Christians live an obedient life. They walk the walk so they can talk the talk for Jesus. No longer are believers in darkness...they are children of light who walk in the light. Ephesians 5:3

Paying attention to Spiritual things and being cautious before acting is the walk of a believer in Christ. Believers in Christ look before they leap. Ephesians 5:15

Anyone can walk this walk with Christ and find victory every day of their lives. What a beautiful life! The sacred theme of the New Testament.
