STEPPING IN THE LIGHT
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him.
God would not have us merely “take a stand,” He would have us walk. Too many have taken a stand and are still standing; for years they have made no progress. The New Testament makes much of our walk. We walk by faith, not by sight. We are to walk in the light, walk in love, walk in newness of life, walk worthy of our vocation, walk circumspectly, walk worthy of the Lord, walk honestly, walk in the truth, walk as He walked. The Christian life begins with a step of faith – “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord” – and it proceeds step by step – “so walk ye in him.”
We are inclined to take a stand and at best strive to maintain it instead of walking daily with God like Enoch. Faith grows as we go. And don’t let your tongue get too far ahead of your feet. Let your walk match your talk!
