Walk as He Walked

1 John 2:6 So to walk even as He walked.

 In order for us to even try to walk in the way Jesus walked on this earth, we must know how He walked. We must study the Scriptures and put them deep in our minds and hearts. Some of the things Jesus did: He ate with the tax collector who was deceptive and selfish and considered an outcast by his own people He allowed prostitutes to be included in his inner group He cared for all people, feeding them, healing them with no strings or expectations attached. He did not defend himself when people accused him falsely He did not react when people made fun of him He set his eyes on his purpose but allowed interruptions with grace and love. The list could go on and on, but, if you are like me, you already feel far too short of your goal to walk like our Lord. Jesus is glorified through the way we walk. Let us all seek him and prayer, confess our commissions and omissions and ask his Holy Spirit to enable us to walk in his way.
