Different ways to walk!

As Christians the scriptures tell us how we should walk. As a wise Christian, you will want to please the Lord and walk according to His pattern.

 Lets look at a few scriptures to see how we should walk as Christians, we should :

 Walk by faith:

 Romans 4:11-13 

11And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:

 12And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.

 13For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

2 Corinthians 5:7

7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

We are to walk in the steps of the faith of Abraham.

The Christian walk is a walk of faith.

Walk in newness of life:

Romans 6:3-5 

3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

 4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

 5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

 Walk after the Spirit:

Romans 8

 1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 Walk in the Spirit:

Galatians 5:16 

 16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Galatians 5:24-26 

 24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

 Walk in good works

Ephesians 2:8-11 

 8For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

 9Not of works, lest any man should boast.

 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

 11Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;

 Walk worthy of your calling:

Ephesians 4: 1 (Amplified)

 1I THEREFORE, the prisoner for the Lord, appeal to and beg you to walk (lead a life) worthy of the [divine] calling to which you have been called [with behavior that is a credit to the summons to God’s service,

2Living as becomes you] with complete lowliness of mind (humility) and meekness (unselfishness, gentleness, mildness), with patience, bearing with one another and making allowances because you love one another.

    3Be eager and strive earnestly to guard and keep the harmony and oneness of [and produced by] the Spirit in the binding power of peace.

Ephesians 4: 1 – 4

 1I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

 2With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

 3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

 Walk in Love:

Ephesians 5: 1 to 3

 1Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;

 2And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.

 3But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

 Walk as children of light:

Ephesians 5

5For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

 6Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

 7Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

 8For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

 Walk wisely:

Ephesians 5:

13But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

 14Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

 15See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,

 16Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

 Ephesians 5:

15Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people),

    16Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil

Walk worthy of the Lord

Colossians 1:9-11

 9For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

 10That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

 11Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

 1 Thessalonians 2:11-13

 11As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children,

 12That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

  Walk in Wisdom

Colossians 4:4-6

 4That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

 5Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

 Walk honestly

1 Thessalonians 4:11-13

 11And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;

 12That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

 13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

 Romans 13:12-14

 12The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

 13Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.

 14But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

 Walk in light

1 John 1:6-8

 6If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

 7But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

 8If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

 

 Walk after His commandments

 1 John 1:5-7

 5And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.

 6And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

 7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

 Walk in truth.

3 John 1:3-5

 3For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth.

 4I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

 5Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethren, and to strangers;

 

 All the above is mostly what we are called to do as Christians. Each Walk is a topic in itself. We should examine ourselves and make sure that we are actually walking in all the above.
