“Walking” in the Bible is often a beautiful metaphor for the practical living of our day-to-day lives. As Christians, we all are on a journey and must strive towards steady progress. As believers, we must learn to walk in the Spirit, meaning that we must strive to align our lives with the influence of Jesus Christ. The Spirit gives us life in the new birth, and we must continue living in the Spirit every day. Walking in the Spirit is a joyful journey that leads to a life of love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. It is a life lived in the constant presence of the Holy Spirit, who guides us towards righteousness and away from sin. May we all strive towards walking in the Spirit every day, knowing that Jesus left His Holy Spirit with us to help us on our journey.

Forgiving To Yourself
Christ forgave us for our sins
(1 John 1:9), and he teaches us to forgive ourselves as well (John 8:36). When you are under the influence of Christ, you find it easier to forgive yourself for your mistakes.
Hopeful + Optimistic
Christ gave us hope for the future (Jer 29:11), even during trials and suffering (James 1:2). When you are under the influence of Christ, you become more hopeful and optimistic about your life and the world around you.
Unashamed To Speaks About Christ Publicly
Christ spoke openly and boldly about the kingdom of heaven (John 7:26). When you are under the influence of Christ, you are not an undercover Christian. Instead, you are led to speak about Christ publicly and willingly (Acts 28:31).
Honest + Truthful
Christ was always honest and truthful (John 14:6-7), even when difficult. When you are under the influence of Christ, you become more honest and truthful in your own life.
Peaceful & Joyful
When you follow Christ, you experience a deep understanding of peace and joy from knowing that God loves you and that you have a purpose in life (Rom 15:13).
Loving + Compassionate
Christ taught us to love our enemies and to do good to those who hate us (Matt 5:43-44). When under Christ’s influence, you naturally become more loving and compassionate towards others.
Christ forgave those who crucified him (Luke 23:34), and he taught us to forgive others as well (Eph 4:32). When you are under the influence of Christ, you find it easier to forgive those who have wronged you.
Christ humbled himself and became a servant of all (Phil 2:8). When you are under the influence of Christ, you become more humble and put the needs of others before your own.
Christ taught us to be grateful for all we have (1 Thess 5:18). When you are under the influence of Christ, you become more grateful for the good things in your life.
Concerned For Others
Christ taught us to love our neighbors as ourselves (Mark 12:21). When you are under Christ’s influence, you naturally become more concerned about others and less about your own needs.
Willingness To Serve
Christ came to serve, not to be served (Mark 10:45). When you are under the influence of Christ, you become more willing to serve others and to put their needs before your own.
