Walking


Various references in the Bible give form to the idea that the life we are called to live is one of walking, of journeying with God by continually choosing to take the next step.

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” —2 Corinthians 5:7

“For we are his creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.” —Ephesians 2:10

“Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.” —Psalm 119:105

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own understanding; think about him in all your ways and he will guide you on the right paths.” —Proverbs 3:5-6

“Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and they hid themselves from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.” —Genesis 3:8 (I.e., in the moment just after sin entered in, the only one walking was God.)
