Walk. It is a way that the Old Testament described living. To walk in darkness was to live in darkness. To walk in the Spirit is to live in such a way that the Spirit controls.

Christians don’t talk much about death; we want to enjoy life, to find success, to have a great marriage and to raise great kids. But death… well that’s for later. Hopefully.

But the essence of being a Christian is death. Ironically, new birth is the first step on a journey into death – the death of our walk. For only in our death can Christ live in us. Getting there is never easy. Wholeness only comes through brokenness.

Our death is the end of our attempt at being God. It is the end of control.

It is the beginning of life. The beginning the indwelling incarnation, where it is Christ living through us.

Take the journey.
