Being in step with God!
"He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.” —1 John 2:6
Have you ever heard a group of people singing, and one person was out of sync with everyone else? They stand out, don’t they?
When the Bible speaks of walking with God, it’s the idea of being in harmony with God, moving in sync with God, or being in rhythm with God.
The Lord said to the prophet Amos, “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” (Amos 3:3 NLT). In the original language, the word “together” means “in harmony.”
I picture a soldier out in a minefield trying to navigate his way to safety. In front of him is another soldier with mine equipment like a metal detector going over the ground in front of him. Every step matters. Staying in step and in the steps of the lead soldier means life or death to the one following.
That is a picture of walking with God. We want to be in harmony with Him and move in the same direction with Him. The Bible tells us, “He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked” (1 John 2:6).
This means we should want to live as Jesus Christ did. We should want to walk closely with Him. As we do so we can be confident that the Lord is with us and we are in His plan and will because we are in his steps and in harmony with Him.
