The Joy of Walking with God

Christians enjoy the inestimable privilege of walking with God. As we proceed through life, we do so in fellowship with the Creator and Sustainer of all that is. We enjoy a relationship of true familiarity and intimacy. God pleads with us to tell him our cares and to make known to him our concerns, and he carries those burdens on our behalf. We, in turn, plead for his wisdom and guidance and he graciously gives it to us. There is no better way to live.

The Christian’s walk is one of close fellowship with God and earnest obedience to God. Here are some of the joys we receive in this walk.

Walking with God pleases God. The person who walks with God declares to the world whose company he loves most. His fellowship with the Father brings glory to the Father. He, like Enoch, will be “commended as having pleased God” (Hebrews 11:5).

Walking with God has evangelistic appeal. Peter tells wives to walk closely with God so their ungodly husbands may be “won without a word” (1 Peter 3:1). Many Christians can attest that the first appeal of the Christian faith was not the message of the gospel but another Christian’s fellowship with God through the gospel.
