7 Ways of Walking

~ Are You Walking Worthy? ~

 

As a Christian we are to walk in such a way that is worthy of our salvation and spiritual inheritance.  You are witnesses, and God also, how devoutly and justly and blamelessly we behaved ourselves among you who believe; as you know how we exhorted, and comforted, and charged every one of you, as a father does his own children, that you would walk worthy of God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory” (1 Thessalonians 2:10-12).


Consider seven ways to walk in a way which is worthy of God who called you into His salvation and gave you a spiritual inheritance.

 

Walk by faith“For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).

 

Walk according to the Word“Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart.  Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it” (Psalm 119:34-35).

 

Walk in the SpiritBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.  Against such there is no law.  And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-25).

 

If you do the first three well you will do the following three! 

 

Walk as those in the light“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.  Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:8-10).

 

Walk the narrow roadMy son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.  If they say, ‘Come with us, let us lie in wait to shed blood; let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause; let us swallow them alive like Sheol, and whole, like those who go down to the Pit; we shall find all kinds of precious possessions, we shall fill our houses with spoil; cast in your lot among us, let us all have one purse’ —  My son, do not walk in the way with them, keep your foot from their path; for their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed blood.  Surely, in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird; but they lie in wait for their own blood, they lurk secretly for their own lives.  So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; it takes away the life of its owners” (Proverbs 1:10-19).

 

Walk in integrityHe who walks with integrity walks securely, but he who perverts his ways will become known” (Proverbs 10:9).

 

If you do the first six well the result is you will…

 

Walk like Christ WalkedNow by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.  He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him.  By this we know that we are in Him.  He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked” (1 John 2:3-6).

 

Are you walking worthy of your position in Christ?
