MemorizeTheBibleWithMe.comThis week – Walk As Children Of Light – Ephesians 5:8-10

I don’t know about you, but in my life I wonder things like: 

  • “What does it look like to follow Jesus?”
  • “How can I make living for Jesus practical?”

The Apostle Paul used a metaphor in his letter to the Ephesians that helps describe how we live as people who love and follow Jesus. 

It’s a simple metaphor and it really captures the daily and intimate nature of our relationship with Jesus. 

Walking

Yep, that’s it.  Walking.

  • It’s daily
  • It implies constant contact
  • It means there is relationship
  • I use it to make progress daily
  • I use it to learn
  • You can do it for a very long time

Here is what Paul wrote:

“for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.  Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.”

Ephesians 5:8-10

There is one thing more…

  • Through daily contact (walking) we watch so we can imitate Jesus
  • This leads to doing
  • This leads to doing what pleases Him
  • This results in our lives being an accurate reflection of the light that is Christ Jesus

What can you do today to shift from just mental knowledge about God to Walking with Him?
