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.
When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.”
“Master,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.” And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear! Luke 5:4 – 6 NLT
One word from the Lord changes everything. Simon and his partners (fishermen by trade) had done everything they could do in their own strength. Their results?
Yet by obeying one simple command from King Jesus, a command that made no sense to them, they experienced results beyond their wildest dreams.
What have you exhausted yourself on without seeing results? Why not stop your striving, look up, and listen to what the Lord has to say about it? Be sure to follow it through, even if it makes no sense at the moment. Obey Him and see what He does. That’s called living in the Reign.
