πŸ‘‘ The “Walk” Of A Christian

A man’s conduct, in Scripture, is called his β€œwalk”. The Bible has much to say about how we walk, morally and spiritually. Many β€œwalk after their own lusts” (II Pet. 3:3) and β€œwalk in darkness” (JohnΒ 12:35). Some even β€œwalk in craftiness” (II Cor. 4:2) trying to lead others astray. Indeed, even Christian believers are sometimes careless about their β€œwalk” and so cause others to stumble.

Every true child of God should be very careful about his walk, or conduct. In Eph. 2:8-10 we read that while believers are not saved by good works, they are saved β€œunto good works.” God’s grace is the root of our salvation, and good works are the fruit.

Sincere believers in Christ are counted as one with Him, and it is expected of us that β€œas Christ was raised up from the dead” after having died for our sins, β€œeven so we also should walk in newness of life” (Rom. 6:4).

Christians are exhorted in the Bible to β€œwalk worthy of the Lord, unto all pleasing” (Col.Β 1:10), to β€œwalk in the spirit” that they might not β€œfulfill the lust of the flesh” (Gal.Β 5:16). They are exhorted to β€œwalk worthy of [their] calling” (Eph. 4:1), to β€œwalk in the light” (I John 1:7) and to β€œwalk as children of the light” (Eph. 5:8). They are exhorted to β€œwalk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise” (Eph.Β 5:15), to β€œwalk honestly” (Rom.Β 13:13), to β€œwalk in love” (Eph. 5:2) and to β€œwalk by faith, not by sight” (II Cor. 5:7).

Much more is said about the believer’s walk in the Bible, but never are we told that it is our β€œwalk,” or conduct, that makes us acceptable for salvation. Our failing, stumbling ways could never earn salvation for us. On the contrary we are exhorted to walk pleasing to the Lord out of sheer gratitude to Him. source
