It is very pleasant to have a good walk (relationship) with another person. It is far greater to have a good walk (relationship) with God. This article reveals how we can do that.

Agreement Is The Basis Of Our Walk

How pleasant it is to have a good walk (relationship) with another person. We cherish those relationships and nurture them. Christians ought to experience an even greater walk with God. We need to be constantly aware of the our walk with Him Is our walk bringing us closer to God or are we wandering away from Him? Of that we must be always alert.

There is a spiritual guideline that lets us know the proximity of our walk with God whether it be close or distant. That guideline is found in a question God posed to a distant Israel by the prophet Amos. “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” God wanted Israel to understand that because they were not in agreement with Him they were not walking with Him. Israel was a disobedient and unrighteous nation .

The question that God put to Israel can be applied to Christians. Are we walking with God? If we are not in agreement with Him we are not walking with God. The closeness of our walk is determined by the degree of our faithfulness to Him – the degree of our obedience and service. His Word admonishes us to walk worthy of God (I Thes 2:12) and to walk pleasing God (I thes 4:1).

Admittedly, walking the walk that God desires of us is not always easy but we have help if we allow Him – Him being the Holy spirit. The apostle Paul named the Holy Spirit as our Helper. “Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” Gal 5:16 After all, it is our craving flesh that walks us away from God when we yield to it. If we will let the Holy Spirit guide us He will keep us on a close walk with God.

We Christians know when we are walking with God in agreement or walking in the flesh in disagreement. I know I do. It might help us to remember there is a great reward for Christians who maintain a close walk with God. At least nine times Christians are portrayed in heaven wearing sparkling clean robes which bespeaks of our inherited purity and righteousness from our Savior.

Walking with God earns Christians an unimaginable journey with Jesus Christ when He returns to earth set up His kingdom. John pictured us “clothed in fine linen, white and clean.” Rev 19:14 Our immaculate white apparel will mark us as Christ's co-regents in the kingdom.

Are you walking with God? Am I walking with God? This is an urgent question we must ask ourselves every day. Not only will God know if we are walking with Him we will know it too. LET US SEEK TO WALK WITH GOD EVERY DAY!
