"Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,"
Do you walk in Him? Even though I have received Him, there are days I walk in myself. Think about this....We have everything we need to really live; given to us by our Savior, and we choose to ignore Him so many times. Walking in Him means:
~ thinking before we speak
~ selflessly giving of our time, energy, talents and money
~ not walking according to the flesh and its desires
~ obedience to Christ
~ abiding in Him by spending quality time in His Word and communing with Him in prayer
~ seeing Jesus more important than all else
~ exhibiting the beautiful fruit He requires us to produce as His children (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control)
~ showing mercy to others, even when we feel they don't deserve it.
~ forgiving others, for we ourselves want to be forgiven.
Today, my friend, walk in Him. His burden is easy, his load is light. You will find rest for your souls.
