Topical Preaching on “The Christian Life is a Walk” (Various Texts)
1. Which way are we to walk?
And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body[a] and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. (Ephesians 2:1-3, ESV)
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:8-10, ESV)
2. How must a Christian walk?
a) We are to walk in a worthy way.
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, (Ephesians 4:1, ESV)
b) Walk in love.
Therefore, be imitators of God, as beloved children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Ephesians 5:1-2, ESV)
c) Walk in wisdom.
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. (Ephesians 5:15-16, ESV)
d) Walk as children of light.
[…] you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (Ephesians 5:8, ESV)
[ Final Slide ]
Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him. (Genesis 5:24, ESV)
By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. (Hebrews 11:5, ESV)
Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, (Colossians 2:6, ESV)
