Walking Through Ephesians

“And you hath He quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world” (Ephesians 2:1,2).

Seven times the Apostle Paul speaks of the believer’s walk in the Book of Ephesians. This walk refers to how the Christian is to conduct himself before a holy God and a Godless world. It speaks of a course of life that one is following; a manner of living; a lifetime experience. How one walks (behaves himself) reflects on his entire Christian testimony. Our previous walk: “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air” (v.2). Our old walk is finished. Our present walk: “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10). Our manner of living should be filled with good works. Our privileged walk: “I . . . beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called” (4:1). Our humble walk: “Walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened” (4:17,18). Our Christ-like walk: “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savor” (5:2). The essence of love is self-sacrifice. Our changed walk: “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light” (5:8). Our wise walk: “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise” (Ephesians 5:15). NPS
