Walk in Christ

2 Corinthians 5:7 AMP
For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.

Yesterday contemplating what it means to walk by faith led to a previous post. This added more thoughts to what it means to walk by faith.

From yesterday Walk by Faith:
Walk by faith with the Lord – not by sight and
=> You will be given eyes to see even in the dark.

From previous post Be Transformed below:
Walk by faith = Walk in Christ
= Walk in union, conformity and obedience to Him
(not the world)

Then
=> not only will you be given eyes to see in the dark
=> you will be transformed
=> growing in faith
=> strong and vigorous in His truth
=> overflowing(blooming) in thanksgiving to the Lord Jesus!

Walk by faith
=>Faith comes by hearing and obeying the word of Christ.

Romans 10:17 NASB
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ

From NetBible Ro 10:17

  • word[4487]rhema= uttered by the living voice

Proverbs 22:17-19 AMP
17 Listen (consent and submit) to the words of the wise, and apply your mind to my knowledge;
18 For it will be pleasant if you keep them in your mind [believing them]; your lips will be accustomed to [confessing] them.
19 So that your trust (belief, reliance, support, and confidence) may be in the Lord, I have made known these things to you today, even to you.

Colossians 2:6-7 AMP
6 As you have therefore received Christ, [even] Jesus the Lord, [so] walk (regulate your lives and conduct yourselves) in union with and conformity to Him.
7 Have the roots [of your being] firmly and deeply planted [in Him, fixed and founded in Him], being continually built up in Him, becoming increasingly more confirmed and established in the faith, just as you were taught, and abounding and overflowing in it with thanksgiving.

From NetBible Col 2:6 & 2 Cor 5:7
