Walk in Him, Christ Jesus the Lord

When we “walk in Him”, we’re not doing a casual, window-shopping style of stroll.  I think it should be similar to power walking, but without relying on our own power and strength to accomplish things in the Kingdom.  We will successfully walk in Him when the power of the Holy Spirit is operating through us so we can fully accomplish the tasks and assignments that God will be calling us to do for Him in this life.


In other words, Colossians 2:6-7 challenges us to …
  • Grow downward by being “rooted”
  • Grow upward by being “built up”
  • Grow inward so that we can be “strengthened in the faith”
  • Grow outward as we “overflow with thankfulness”
  We should walk at least 2.5 miles a day, so we will have walked about 1,000 miles every year just like Jesus.
  A Christ-like life is one of study, prayer, meditation and contemplation – and so going for long walks isn’t actually the best use of our time. To walk in Him, it would be more beneficial to spend our leisure time reading the Bible instead.
  Jesus lived a physically active life as an example for us to follow. As we walk in Him, we should strive to be both physically and spiritually healthy – by taking care of our bodies (the temples of the Holy Spirit – 1 Cor. 6:19) and by study so we are always prepared to correctly handle the Word of God (2 Tim. 2:15).
  All of the above.
