The Christian Walk

Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ.  May The Lord bless you and pour His grace upon you and your loved ones.

Occasionally we are asked questions such as, ''What is a Christian?''  Or, ''How is a Christian supposed to conduct themselves in their everyday life?''  As a result of these and similar requests, we thought that we would take a moment to address these questions.

First of all, we are told to love God with our whole heart, soul and mind.  This is proclaimed in several places in the Bible, one of them being Matthew 22:37.  It follows by stating that this is the first and greatest commandment.  It continues by saying that the second commandment is very much like the first, ''You shall love your neighbor as yourself.''  By occupying the first two positions in the Ten Commandments, we can see that love occupies a very important place in God's laws.

In addition to obeying God's laws -- the Ten Commandments -- the Christian is admonished in Micah 6:8 (NRSV), as follows: ''He has told you, O mortal, what is good, and what does The Lord require of you but to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God.''  (Note that it says to ''walk humbly,'' as opposed to ''walk pridefully.'')

Truth occupies a high place in God's eyes.  3 John 1:4 (NRSV) says, ''I have no greater joy than this, to hear that my children are walking in the truth.''  We are also told to walk in the light.  1 John 1:7 says, ''But if we walk in the light, as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus, His son, cleanses us from all sin.''

Other verses in the Bible tell us to walk in God's name, to walk in love and obedience, to walk in the paths of righteousness, to walk in The Holy Spirit, and to walk as Jesus walked.

We hope this clarifies some of the questions Christians have regarding how to conduct ourselves and helps us to be better Christians.

May God bless you and your loved ones.

Your humble servant in Christ.
