“If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25 ). In this day of power walking, how many steps a person makes during a day could really surprise you. Although bodily exercise is good, I’m aware that, as determined as some are, they still are making only a few steps. Yet, some make a lot. Still, others are constantly on their feet; they’re stepping all day long. Some have even purchased walking monitors to indicate how many steps they’ve made at the ending of the day.
After thinking along this line, I began meditating on our spiritual walk. How are we walking? How are we stepping? What if there was a device to monitor ‘how’ a person steps in the Christian life? Today, I encourage you to step with the Spirit. That is, to walk like the Spirit say walk for the best spiritual health possible. I hope, in your walk, you’ll discover that stepping with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control is indeed the ‘way to step’ with the Spirit.
“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16).
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5:22).
I will keep on thanking God that in Christ Jesus, He gave the example on how to walk; following His steps guides our steps. By Hertistine Washington/keeponthanking.com
