Walk as a Christian

In many places in scripture the word walk is used to show us how we should live as Christians. In 1 John 2:6; (NKJV) we are told that we should “walk just as He walked”, that is as Jesus walked on the earth. We should, “walk in love, just as Jesus loves us” (Eph 5:2), walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8b) and walk according to His truth or the word (3 John 1:3-4). We are to walk carefully, not deviating from God’s directions (Eph 5:15).
God’s people are to “walk worthy of the calling with which they were called” (Eph 4:1; NKJV), with humility, gentleness, patience, love, unity and peace (Eph 4:2-3). We are exhorted to walk as, “children of light” (Eph 5:8; NKJV) in a way that God would approve of “in all goodness, righteousness and truth” (v9). Importantly, the apostle Paul also directed us to walk in the good works that God designed for us (Eph 2:10b). This would include blessing, helping and caring for others and sharing the gospel.
If we are humble, we know that we can do nothing without God and can only walk in His ways through Christ who strengthens us (Phil 4:13). This may all seem very daunting, how is it possible for us? The apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians, “Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh” (Gal 5:16; NKJV). We need to allow the Holy Spirit to change us, discipline our flesh (mind, will and emotions) and direct our lives to walk as Christians (Gal 5:16-26). He will do this if we allow Him to.
