The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all those who practice it have a good understanding.
His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10 NRSV
In my last post I wrote about how we must learn to walk by the Spirit if we are going to truly live under the government of God. While it may sound impractical or even a little other-worldly, it is a skill we must develop. In this post I want to provide you with the key to walking by the Spirit through a very familiar passage of Scripture.
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?
If you tell someone they are nothing more than a follower they are likely to get upset. Everyone wants to think of themselves as being their own person; someone in charge of their own lives. I hate to break it to you, but we are all followers. Don’t believe me? Read on…
Jesus Christ is the light of the world. He is the Source and Revelation of all that is true. When we observe Him we see God as He truly is. When we look at Jesus we also see man as God intended him to be. The question is, how do we walk in the light we have in Christ?
There are many times we can go along thinking we are doing pretty good in our walk with the Lord. Then, all of a sudden, we are caught by a hidden sinful attitude that only the Lord could expose. As embarrassing as it may be, I feel I am suppose to share a recent experience of mine.
