The Believer's Walk

I Thessalonians 4:1-18

Up to now the Apostle Paul has spoken of the salvation, the nurturing, and the grounding of the saints at Thessalonica. The life that began with a step of faith is now a walk of faith. Throughout the New Testament we have the comparison of the Christian life with a walk.

In his letter to the Ephesians Paul said, · "…walk worthy of the vocation where with ye are called…" · "…walk not as other Gentiles walk…" · "…walk in love…" · "…walk as children of light…" · In 2 Co. he said, "…for we walk by faith, not by sight…"

Walking suggests progress, and we must make progress in our Christian life. Walking also demands strength, and God as promised to supply the strength we need to walk with Him. At the end of life's walk, we will step into the very presence of the Lord.

"And Enoch walked with God, and He was not, for God took him." Genesis 5:25
