The Believer's Walk 1

Christianity is not meant to be a philosophical idea nor is it the result of anything we do. In fact, I read on an occasion that Christianity is not spelled “do” but “done.”

In other words, it’s not about what we do but about what Christ has done.

What Christ has done is referred to as the Gospel; we can sum it up in the following steps:

  • We blew it.
  • Christ paid for it.
  • God loves us.
  • We must receive His gift.

As a result of what Christ has done and our acceptance of the same, the Bible encourages the Believer, in Psalm 4:26, to “ponder the path of your feet and let all your ways be established.”

So what is this new walk now available to His new Creation? Consider the following:

1. Walk in your new life.

Romans 6:4 – Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

• Walking in your new life is simply walking by the Word.

2. Take a faith stroll.

II Corinthians 5:7 – For we walk by faith, not by sight.

• Walk what you believe.

3. This is a spiritual journey.

Galatians 5:16 – I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

• Walk in the Spirit’s power.

4. Walk in love.

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.

• It’s a lovely day to walk in love.

The beautiful thing about taking a walk is all the lovely experiences you have on the journey.

Walk through these four beneficial lifestyles of the Believer, stopping at each one, until you can see its beauty and smell its fragrance.

One thought on “The Believer’s Walk

  1. Michael

    If we operate and walk according to these four points people will be drawn to us. Drawing people to us is one of the most effective ways we can share our testimony and share the good news of our Lord and Savior with people.

    It’s our responsibility as believers to walk in love (point four from Pastor above). If we are not operating in love towards one another, then we are not/cannot be a witness for Jesus.
