Daily Devotion: Walk in Love

Bible Reading: Ephesians 5:1-10

Key Verse: Verse 2– “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.”

Key Words: walk in love

The word walk means to occupy yourself with; it is how you conduct yourself, your conduct. So wherever I go, people should see by my walk (conduct) that I love the Lord.

Some time back Tony Evans wrote, “Many people after our services on Sunday line up to get a CD of the message. When I speak on Sunday mornings, the messages are taped and made available for purchase when the service is over. People each week line up to get the CD. What they get is a copy of the master. There is a master CD that holds the original recording; then there are the copies that are made available to people who want to listen to the sermon again or share it with someone else. All that people can purchase are the replicas. The replicas of the master sound like the master, and feel like the master, but they are not the master. However, they are so much like the master, it’s as good as having the master itself.

Jesus is the Master, but what He wants to do is copy Himself onto His followers, so that when people see you or me, they are getting a recording of the Master, as we are committed to following our Master who has all authority. This is the essence of discipleship.

Thought: Your walk walks and your talk talks but your walk talks louder than your talk talks.
