Funny title? It is when we think of the physical, however what about the spiritual?
Eph 4:1 says that we are to walk worthy of the calling with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in LOVE :). The following verses encourage you for the work of the ministry, know what you believe and why because there are men that will deceive you. No matter what speak the truth in love.
In 4:17 Paul tells that we should not walk as the other Gentiles in the vanity of their minds. If we have been taught of Christ we will put off those things. The rest of this chapter talks about those being alienated from the life of God through their own ignorance, being past feeling and given themselves over to sin. Paul says, put off this old man and be renewed in the spirit of your mind and put on the new man which is after God created in righteousness and true holiness. Speak truth, give not place to the devil, let your speech be edifying and minister grace to your hearers and grieve not the holy spirit of God.
Let us walk in love, being kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God for Christs sake has forgiven us.
When we walk out love, it supernaturally illuminates the Lordship of Jesus in us. It reveals that there is a God and He does transform lives! Left to ourselves we tend to do the opposite and walk like the Gentiles in the vanity of our minds. Praise God for the work of the Holy Spirit in us and the scriptures that lead us into everlasting truth.
