“…God isn’t looking simply for outward obedience. He’s seeking after those who will walk intimate with Him to, in turn, reflect Him in how we respond to life.” – Glorious Grace
In this week’s reading (Eph. 5:1-21) there were many references to how we must walk: “walk in love” (v.2), “walk as children of the light” (v.8), “look carefully how you walk“(v.15), “walk, not as unwise but as wise”(v.15).
The two themes emphasized in our “walking” from this passage are love and wisdom – heart and head. In living this life for God we must push in on love, even when it’s hard and messy. We don’t give up on it. And in seeking wisdom we must pursue it like buried treasure (Prov. 2:4). We must give thought to our steps and intention to our time, not merely flying by the seat of our pants.
When we do these things, our steps start to align more with His steps. Our hearts explode with joy and our minds are blown by His truth, proven again and again.
