"As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him." Col 1:6
Having Jesus and yet choosing to walk your own path makes as much sense as having a new pair of shoes and going barefoot. We are told the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord (Psa 37:23). And beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news (Rom 10:15). But neither one of those scriptures apply if we are unwilling to walk in the Lord. It's hard to grow your faith if you're unwilling to leave your comfort zone and walk where the Lord leads you. Those who walk with the Lord will always reach their destination, and find out that where the Lord takes them faith says no matter what lies ahead the Lord is already there!
Don't fear walking in the Lord, like a book every step just leads to a new chapter and a great ending!
