The Christian Believer’s Walk

A Christian’s walk in this world is different from the walk of those around him. the path that we have chosen in life is meant to separate a Christian from the “walk” of those we are surrounded by. I John 2:6 states that “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk even as he walked.”  As Jesus walked, we as his disciples should also walk.

Jesus Christ’s walk in this world was a selfless one. As most people come into the world to live, He came into the world to die. Everything he did was based on a selfless principle.

Instead of of Christ being self-centered, he was other-centered. This was the core of his walk. Ephesians 5:2 states that we are to” …walk in love.” As Christians, Christ left us the commandment to love one another. The world knows that we belong to him by the way that we love one another. (another part of the walk) II John 1:4 lets us know we are to walk in truth. (I believe this truth deals with honesty with ourselves as well as honesty with others)

Galatians 5:16 exhorts us to “Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.” As the Apostle Paul stated, “in my flesh dwelleth no good thing.” Ephesians 5:15,16 states that we are to “walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”  Finally, we are to walk “worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called.” (Ephesians 4:1) We are Christ’s workmanship and our lives are to exemplify goodness and portray what is right in this life.

By walking as Jesus walked, we draw others to him; and even after we live no more, the walk of the believer goes on.
