Have you noticed that if you know someone well, you can recognize them just by the way they walk?
That’s true physically, and it’s also true spiritually. In spiritual terms, a person’s walk is their way of life – their deliberate decisions that determine how they will live every day.
The Bible teaches that we need to be very careful about the way we walk. For example, look at how the Apostle Paul urges believers to walk:
A “proper” walk for a Christian does not include revelry (carousing), drunkenness, lewdness, lust, strife or envy. Those are some of the “thou shalt nots” of the Christian walk.
But there are also many positive features that should be evident in every believer’s walk. Here’s one that is absolutely fundamental to the Christian life:
Ephesians 5:2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
If there’s one thing that should characterize the walk of Christian, it’s love!
How well do you walk today?
