walk with the Lord

Romans 8


[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

The freedom, the blessing, and the escape from judgment, don't just come from us doing whatever we want. Our life is like a continuing journey, or a walk. Walking isn't just a one-time event, but it's a continuing process made up of many different steps.

Each time we're faced with a temptation, or a decision whether do do what's right or wrong, it's one of those steps in our walk. We can choose to walk after the flesh, and do what would feel good to ourselves, or we could choose walk with the Lord and do what's right.

Sure, if we choose to do what's right, it won't all be fun and games. There's suffering involved. Obviously, for one thing, just suffering the lost momentary pleasure of sin. But ultimately, it's more than worthwhile.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
