Walking Together

1 John 2.jpg

We know that we have come to know him if we keep his commands. Whoever says, “I know him” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him. Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.                                                                                                                                            1 John 2:3-6

The word walking speaks of regularity, of moving at a certain pace. The Bible tells us in Genesis 5 about Enoch, who walked with God. But what does it mean to “walk with God?” Is it just a religious cliche?

When it comes to walking with God, some of us want to run ahead of Him. Others lag behind. What we need to do is move in harmony with Him. We need to stay close to him and make a continual commitment to do so. Referring to our daily relationship with God’s Holy Spirit, the New Testaments says, “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” (Galatians 5:25)

But what does this mean in practice? How do we do this? What does it look like to keep in step with the Spirit? It means we take time for the things of God. It means that when we get up in the morning, we take time to read the Bible. If we neglect the Word of God, it will show in our lives. Abiding in Jesus also means that we spend time in fellowship with God’s people.

Make time for the things of God. And don’t wait for time to simply materialize, deliberately carve out room in your schedule. If it means an hour less of sleep, fine. If it means skipping a meal, okay. If it means missing a television program or being on the computer, so be it. Do what you need to do because those things are essential to spiritual growth, to abiding with God, and to bearing spiritual fruit.

And this walk with God is a walk, the best of all walks, that will bring indescribable richness to your daily life.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends

  2. Whats up this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
