Bible Study: The Walk

The Spiritual Walk

Some call it "spiritual formation," "discipleship," or "character transformation." Essentially it's God's work as He transforms our characters to reflect the image of Jesus. This occurs by getting to know God, appreciating Him and being willing to do His will.

"This is the way to have eternal life--to know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one You sent to earth. John 17:3 (NLT).

The Apostle Paul speaks of "walking in the Spirit." Our lives can be a "spiritual walk" only if we begin our days with God in conversation: Listening to His Word, responding to him in prayer, confession, praise and gratitude.

Developing a consistent devotional life requires a certain amount of self-discipline. Developing a habit is the easiest way to make it a regular part of our lives. So find a time and place that works for you. It might be early in the morning before breakfast or evenings just before bedtime. Once the habit is developed it becomes easier. Here are some suggestions that might help you find a method that is meaningful to you.
