How is your Walk?

"For we are the temple of the living God.
As God has said: "I will live with them
and walk among them, and I will be their
God, and they will be my people."
2 Corinthians 6:16

The Bible talks a lot about "walking" in God's
ways. Some people will say they have a "walk"
with God. So as you read these verses, we
should each ask ourselves, "How is my walk?"
That just means, "Am I living out the principles
in the Bible?" God says to "walk in His ways"
but how else can we know His ways if we don't
know what the Bible says? First we need to
read God's word, then we need to apply it. We need
to ask God to give us the strength to walk in
His ways and not our own ways. Read each of
these verses below and see the promises God has
if we will walk in His ways!

I will walk among you and be your God,
and you will be my people.
Leviticus 26:12

Walk in all the way that the Lord your God
has commanded you, so that you may live and
prosper and prolong your days in the land
that you will possess.
Deuteronomy 5:33

And now, O Israel, what does the Lord your
God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God,
to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve
the Lord your God with all your heart and with
all your soul Deut 10:12

You have declared this day that the Lord is
your God and that you will walk in his ways,
that you will keep his decrees, commands and
laws, and that you will obey him.
Deut 26:17

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he
said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever
follows me will never walk in darkness, but
will have the light of life." John 8:12

Whoever claims to live in him must walk
as Jesus did. 1 John 2:6

And this is love: that we walk in obedience
to his commands. As you have heard from the
beginning, his command is that you walk in
love. 2 John 1:6

*Just in these verses we see that we are to:
walk in all of God's ways, walk in obedience,
walk as Jesus did, and walk in love.
We also see that God will walk among us and
that if we follow Jesus we will never walk
in darkness. God doesn't ask us to run,
jump or fly.
He just asks us to walk:

one step at a time:

For Him, With Him, Beside Him!
