Walking Worthy

On Walking Worthy. . .

For me, the sense of walking worthy sometimes brings mixed emotions.  I know in my heart that I am not worthy of God’s love or the Salvation he has given, or the blessings that he has bestowed upon me.  But at the same time, in his Word, he tells me that I should walk worthy of him, his pleasure and of my vocation.  At first this didn’t make sense – kind of an I’m not deserving, but you want me to act like I am – thing.  After some thinking, this thought came to mind.  Have you ever given someone something just because you love them?  Of course you have, we all have.  Did they deserve it?  Not necessarily.  But what a joy and happiness comes over you when you see them enjoying it, loving it, and yes, even thanking you for it.  For me, walking worthy, is living life everyday in appreciation of what God has done for me.  It is digging in the Book he has given me, finding out what he wants me to do – and doing it!  Living my life, to the best of my ability, in a manner that pleases God.  Showing his love to others, sharing Christ, and being completely thankful for those things that I don’t deserve.  If I just throw the things God gives to the side, I am not walking worthy at all – no, I am not deserving of what God gives, but because he gives it, I will walk each and every day trying my best to please him, to serve him, and to live for him.

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; (Colossians 1:10)  I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, (Ephesians 4:1)  That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.  (1 Thessalonians 2:12)
