The Way A Christian Walks

“As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him” (Colossians 2:6).

The Christian life is occasionally like running a race, but more commonly it is a day-by-day walk—a steady, consistent pilgrimage, stable yet advancing, with direction and goal. Since it began by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, it must continue the same way—by grace and in faith.

It is not a walk in the dark. Jesus said: “I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). Neither is it a walk “according to the course of this world” (Ephesians 2:2), trying to keep in step with the world’s pace and heading in the world’s direction. We are to “walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind” (Ephesians 4:17).

Instead, we are to “walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time” (Colossians 4:5). Instead of vanity, we are urged to “walk worthy of the vocation wherewith (we) are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love” (Ephesians 4:1,2).

When we began the Christian walk, it was through receiving Christ Jesus the Lord, not only as Savior, but also as our way, our truth, and our life (John 14:6). Now God says: “This is the way, walk ye in it” (Isaiah 30:21), and He desires that His “children walk in truth” (III John 4).

Therefore, we should “walk in the Spirit” and “not fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). With His guidance and power, we can, indeed, walk in love, and wisdom, and truth, as the Lord desires. After all, we have been “created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10). Therefore, “he that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked” (I John 2:6). HMM
