By Faith We Walk With God (1)

Micah 6:1-8

"... walk humbly with thy God."

If a king invited you to walk with him, would you regard it as a great privilege and gladly accept his invitation right away, or just ignore or reject it? Today, let us listen to the kind invitation, or rather, a commandment, from the King of kings and Lord of lords, even our living and true God and our Creator to each one of us personally, "I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect" (Gen 17:1) and "He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?" (Micah 6:8). Our risen Lord Jesus Christ still invites us, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12) and "Follow me" (John 21:19). What is your response?

The Bible tells us about Enoch (Gen 5:22-24), Noah (Gen 6:9), Abraham (Gen 17:1; 24:40), David (1 Kings 3:6), etc., who walked with God and were richly blessed. Consider especially, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God" (Heb 11:5). What are the blessings of walking with God, and how can we walk with God?

Being transformed to be like Jesus Christ: God created human beings in His likeness with His glory, but sadly due to Adam and Eve's fall, God's glory departed from them. However, God's purpose is to save those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ so that they might "be conformed to the image of his Son" (Rom 8:29), and "are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord" (2 Cor 3:18). As "he that walketh with wise men shall be wise" (Prov 13:20), the more we walk closer with the Lord Himself, the more we shall be holy, faithful, obedient, wise and humble like our Lord, and we shall be His holy people (Deut 28:9).

THOUGHT: Am I filled with the Holy Spirit? Or something else?

PRAYER: Help me always to submit to the Holy Spirit and Thy Word.
