The twenty-fourth of July, 1975, was on a Thursday. It was a day just like any other summer day in South-western Kansas; probably hot and dry. But something happened on this particular day that would change my life forever.

This past week, Dr. Leonard Sweet posted something on Facebook that really got me to thinking. He wrote,
“Christianity is a religion of incarnation. Any attempt to make it into a religion of explanation, examination or execution is an abomination.”
In a world where Christ has been theologized, sermonized, debated and hated, I think we do well to pay attention to these powerful words.

There is a good many of us who find living under the government of the Holy Spirit to be a struggle. We are a lot like the gentleman in the picture above. Every day is a struggle to keep our heads above water before we sink down into a life overwhelmed by our flesh. In this post I would like to discuss a fundamental reason as to why we struggle the way we do.

The title of this post may seem like a strange question to ask. I’m assuming, of course, that the majority of you know how to walk physically, unless some disability prevents you from doing so. Those of us seeking to live our lives under the government of God, however, are called to walk a particular walk. Do you know how to walk in that way?
