Throughout the New Testament, most of the writers use the “walk” (peripateõ) meaning to live or behave as a customary way of life. It was not to be like a faucet that we turn on or off as we wish. Paul urged the Ephesians “to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called” (Ephesians 4:1). That calling was in the gospel.
John wrote to the “elder” this commendation: “I rejoiced greatly to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as we were commanded by the Father.” He goes on to remind them of an important commandment, “one we have had from the beginning —that we love one another. And this is love that we walk according to His commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it.” (2 John 4–6).
Let us make sure that we are not allowing world or national events, the culture and current trends to ‘squeeze” us into the world’s mold. This causes us to walk after the things of the flesh and not the Spirit. These two things are contrary to each other (Galatians 5:16-18). If we ask Him, the Spirit will help us walk in love for the truth in His power.
