The Holy Walk

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him.

Rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children.

And live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

It is God's will that you should be sanctified: for God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.

Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

That you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,

Being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joy.
