I love the analogy of walking used in this passage. Paul could’ve used any metaphor to describe our response to Christ’s love for us, but he uses the word “walk”. God could’ve had us simply “stand”, receive him, check off the salvation box, and then wait for Him to call us up. But no… walking implies movement, a process, and a journey. One that not only will include ups and downs, easy times and hard times, but a journey that we can know, without a doubt, we’re not alone in.
God is with us, and with us every step of the way. I know I need to be reminded myself that I don’t have to have it all figured out in order to be with God. What a relief! Lord, thank You for that truth. Thank You that no matter what, You are with me. Please help me turn to You and seek Your way and will for my walk!
